  • My First Drum Book

    ericf4 and I were discussing our respective starts in drumming the other day. My first recollection was watching a Rod Stewart concert on TV in the late 70s. I was taken in by the drummer. I started collecting cardboard boxes for drums and I was hooked. Eric reminded me that I was most likely watching Carmine Appice. That led to remembering my first ever drum book was Carmine’s. I had to track it down for nostalgia’s sake. I found a decent copy complete with poster and floppy 33 records. So cool.

        syncopation was my first book. I remember playing through the book on a practice pad while tapping my foot on every quarter note.

        humble beginnings.

          Was Carmine playing electric back then? That drum on the right that looks like a concert tom has a bottom with what looks like a TRS cable plugged into it.

              This month’s Modern Drummer covers Carmine’s Realistic Rock kit... wow how timely. And it answered my question:

              ”There are also a pair of Joe Pollard Syndrum electronic drums installed inside the shells of the 6" and 8" concert toms. Joe Pollard’s Syndrums were the first commercially available electronic drums. They were introduced the same year as this set and were considered extremely cutting-edge at the time.”

                      Back when I was busy with drum machines (I know this is sacrilege but I’m a guitar/synth player) I found a book that was an encyclopedia of rock drum riffs. It had one or two bars of the verse/chorus riffs plus the full score for Tom Sawyer (or YYZ, I forget).


                      I was also using it to teach myself drumming. I kept it in a bag with a Machinedrum and both were taken in a burglary ten years ago.

                      I’m guessing the licensing fees didn’t allow for a second printing. And I’ve never found a reference to it online.

                      Do any of you recall this book? I think it was by Mel Bay.

                        My drum teacher assigned me Realstic Rock in the mid 90's along with Stick Control, Reed's Syncopation and Bellson's Reading 4/4

                        Carmine's book was the first rock beats I played.
