TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES ADVANCED PHRASING CONCEPTS FEATURING PETE RILEY
By Pete Riley
This superb DVD will take you through a step-by-step approach that can be applied to your drumming and allow new ideas to be phrased around the kit.
Pete begins by demonstrating this with hand-to-hand accenting, double strokes and flams then moves onto more advanced odd grouping ideas which are in turn applied to double pedal phrasing, open-handed hi-hats, inverted double strokes, Moeller single strokes and many more vocabulary expanding concepts.
These ideas can easily be applied by any drummer wanting to break away from the constraint of ‘licks’ giving them the freedom to phrase their own ideas through different subdivisions, across beats and over barlines.
Pete Riley has worked with artist as diverse as Republica, Motorhead and more recently Keith Emerson of ELP fame. He’s a regular contributor to Rhythm magazine and author of three bestselling drum tuition books
