* More and more popular musical artists today use odd time signatures to give their music a unique sound.
* This practice goes back to the 1960s, with Dave Brubeck and The Beatles, and continued with artists like King Crimson, Rush, Sting, Metallica, Tool, and Radiohead.
* To many musicians, these meters are complex and mysterious.
* However, nothing could be farther from the truth.
* Odd time signatures should be easy to understand, as they are simply meters with an odd number of beats to the bar.
* The Drummer’s Guide to Odd Time Signatures will help you understand how to hear and feel these meters and to use them in a variety of musical situations and genres.
* Take your drumming to the next level, and master the art of playing in odd time signatures!
* A CD demonstrating the musical examples in the book is included.
* "Rick Landwehr's Drummer's Guide to Odd Time takes the drum set player on a step by step journey into the world of odd times.
* Beginning with a simple waltz and advancing to 11/4 time signatures.
* Every example is clear and concise, providing insight and logic, simplifying complex meter concepts.
* The fun Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Jazz examples will broaden any player's bag of tricks.
* I welcome this book to my library, and look forward to using it with my students." --Casey Scheuerell, Berklee College of Music, Jean-Luc Ponty, Gino Vannelli, Chaka Khan
