Format: Paperback
Jim Chapin's Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer is the witten document that shifted drumming into the modern world. I have owned a copy since I was 16 years old (forty years). It still holds up, and opened many doors for myself and other drummers. Mr. Chapin has trained many outstanding drummers, in his methods, which derive from the Moeller technique he was trained in as a young man. How can you miss with a drummer that was a compatriot of Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich and countless others? Not to mention, the father of the incredible Harry Chapin. You can't be a drummer and not know about this book. The CD is a major boost, for us. This is ONE musical genius!
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending it to all drummers. Go for it!

HASH(0x9b4a0d08) out of 5 stars A classic book Sept. 24 2005
By Peter Casselman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book helped shape the art of drumming, and continues to be a must-have for drummers. Chapin's book was used a favorite of Elvin, Tony, and tons of great drummers. This book isn't just for jazz drummers, though. Anyone looking to develop independence should check out this book. The independence it builds between the hands and feet is invaluable in any type of music that needs to groove. Even almost sixty years after its publication, this continues to be an amazing book.

HASH(0x9b4a115c) out of 5 stars Hand-written notation hard to read March 20 2010
By Info Source - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not commenting on the content, but this is hand-written musical notation that looks like it has been through a few generations or recopying. It looks sloppy, and when you are taxing your brain trying to learn exercises, you shouldn't have to worry about reading muddy and blurry print the publisher was too lazy to spend a couple hundred bucks to transcribe into sharp, readable text. My "62nd printing" looks like it has been through a photocopier about that many times.

HASH(0x9b4a1144) out of 5 stars an invaluable resource for drummers Sept. 14 2012
By kirklandish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're like me you may be overwhelmed by the amount of instructional material out there. The reality is there is so much to learn and so little time. You can overwhelm yourself trying to learn the myriad of styles out there.

I have bought a few books in the eight years I have been playing drums. This is one of the best I have run across. It's at once challenging and fairly accessible. The lessons proceed in a logical manner and help one realize concepts that are invaluable.

After stopping and starting a few different methods in the rush to learn everything (maybe you can relate), I have decided to concentrate my energy on this (along with the Rich/Adler rudiment) book. The lessons really help with 4 way coordination, left hand development and help one internalize how different subdivisions feel.

The author also suggests ways for getting more mileage out of the book like playing all the earlier exercises with the bass drum or playing a quarter note ride instead of the traditional spang a lang.

I play music that is more in a heavy indie/alternative rock vein, but I feel this book has been way more valuable in helping me develop than some of the more rock oriented exercises I have practiced. Every time I spend a couple of weeks with this book I feel my playing has improved.

Definitely focusing on this from now on and working this all the way through.

The only thing I wish it had was a section on 3/4 jazz time. But I can work on that later.

HASH(0x9b4a1600) out of 5 stars Great Tool for becomming a Great Drummer!... Jan. 22 2012
By Drums&Percussion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many top names in music have used his book...one of my instructors got me into this book years ago and I recently puchased it again after giving away my previous copy. This edition comes with a CD of Jim Chapin playing the patterns as they are written. If you need help in getting started, find an instructor in your area who can help you play these patterns. I found it very, very useful for keeping time while being able to develop my own creative expression. You can do it too...a little effort with this book will help you grow into becomming a mature musician. Also, check out another great book for developing independence and coordination: Gary Chester's, The New Breed.
