This is a new PDF version of the popular rhythm training and sight-reading manual by Doug Stronach. Because electronic books don’t require paper, printing or binding, the cost of the PDF book is almost half that of the hard copy version. There’s also a positive effect on the environment, and with copyright protection built in, it ensures that future drumming publications will be written and made available. There is also no shipping cost on PDF books as the product is downloaded via the internet. All in all, PDF books add up to a sizable savings over hard-copy versions.
***From September to December 31st 2016, included with the purchase of this PDF eBook is one free 30 minute introductory Skype Lesson with Doug. After purchase, please email to setup a lesson time.
Duple and Triple is the first book of its kind for pipe band drumming and a real workhorse for the pipe band drummer or piper. The book has over 60 pages of rhythms in both simple (duple) and compound (triple) meters, covering most of the popular and more advanced rhythms found in pipe band music today. The bulk of the book contains monotone rhythms to study, with sticking examples and sight-reading exercises given at intervals throughout the book.
