> > > The Odd Time Drumming Book by Dave Lewitt

Hudson Music are releasing yet another book which is worth drummers’ attention and, hopefully, time.

The Odd Time Drumming Book” by Dave Lewitt, takes a practical and fun approach to learn odd times, covering 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, 5/8, 7/8, 9/8, 11/8, 13/8, 15/8, 17/16 and 19/16. Together, this group of time signatures cover much of what is used in fusion and progressive rock, and each time signature is explored with up to 36 different groove examples from easy to difficult. There is also a musical etude for each meter.

One of the most engaging aspects of the book are the real-world examples provided for each time signature on tracks from legendary artists such as Frank Zappa, Rush, Bill Bruford, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Led Zeppelin, Tool, Soundgarden, King Crimson, The Allman Brothers, Heart, Radiohead, and many more.

Audio demos of many of the transcribed artist grooves are provided, as well as a video for each chapter/time signature demonstrating various examples from the book. As with all books in Hudson’s digital format, you simply tap on an icon or example and that audio or video will play back from right within the book.
