In Sticking Patterns, Gary's unique approach to the use of stickings is explored. Completely different from the rudiments, Gary's system is designed specifically for drum set performance, both for creating time feels as well as for filling and soloing. Also included are sections on accented single strokes, as well
as the use of double strokes on the set. The four-volume PATTERNS series by Gary Chaffee is one of the most contemporary and comprehensive drum methods available. Endorsed by many of today's top players, the books cover a wide range of materials, and will help students develop the kinds of skills necessary for drum set performance. The PATTERNS books are designed to be used in any order, or in combination with one another. A must for the serious student.
