Book & CD
This groundbreaking book offers a step-by-step approach for drummers of all styles to learn and apply the concept of open-handed playing on the modern drumset. Based on concepts developed by teaching great Jim Chapin and fusion legend Billy Cobham, Open-Handed Playing not only outlines all the benefits of avoiding the crossing of hands when playing the drumset, but provides an incredibly detailed, complete and approachable method for learning this technique.
"There is a wealth of ideas and exercises that offer students inspiration to develop their own approaches and applications."
