Okay, I’ll get Stick Control out of the way. Which other book had the most impact on your technique and style?

Realistic Rock… It was my first drum set book as a kid and I have been using it with ALL off my beginner students for the last 9 years.

Mel Bay’s The Drummer’s Cook Book. Excellent for a beginner, which was me in the mid 80s.

The Rock Drumming Workbook by Chet Doboe really helped my bass drumming.  Honorable mention must go to Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummer by Ted Reed.  Peace and goodwill.
