> > Gil Sharone’s brand new book and DVD


Legendary and super-creative drummer- Gil Sharone, who has worked with such names as Dillinger Escape Plan, Marylin Manson, Morgan Heritage, Team Sleep and Stolen Babies, wants to take you on historical journey and give you detailed lessons covering Reggae and Pre-Reggae styles, including Ska, Rocksteady and Burru.  Reggae drumming is broken down in detail with numerous patterns, looking at the one drop groove, hi-hat variations, steppers and rockersvariations, important reggae drummers, and more. Gil also follows the development of the music through the styles that followed reggae, with analysis and examples of dancehall, 2-Tone, 3rd wave, dub, and hip-hop/reggae. Each of the styles is explored in detail with groove variations, fills, complete transcriptions and full musical performances with legendary players from the LA ska and reggae scene. Also included are historical photos of the Jamaican bands and drumming legends, information about getting the right sound, recommended listening, and four bonus play-along tracks. Here is the video demonstration of the DVD content:

The book comes with a code to download the full-length video from Gil’s Wicked Beats DVD, which accompanies the book. A full-color digital version with embedded video is also available from the Hudson Music Digital Bookstore. In the digital version, the video is integrated into the text so you can click on a video and have it appear while you view/practice the accompanying notation.

We hope, that you will find joy in exploring these rhythms, which are coming right from the heart!
