The Art of Transcribing is a book that makes transcribing for the drum set as easy as 1-2-3. Here is how it works: 1) Learn one rhythm at a time (every variation of 16th notes and 8th note triplets are covered). 2) Transcribe the beats and fills from the CD on to the blank music paper that is provided. 3) Check your accuracy by viewing the answers in the back of the book. This book can be used for self study (as explained above) or tailored by a teacher to be compatible for drummers of all levels. For example, the teacher can play the beats live or program a drum machine. This will allow the teacher to slow down the tempo for beginning students and also allow the teacher to speed up the tempo for intermediate and advanced students. The Art of Transcribing is two books in one. Not only will this book teach you skills necessary to transcribe, it will also give you over 200 beats and fills to play!
