Peter Magadini's Polyrhythms is acclaimed the world over and has been hailed by Modern Drummer magazine as by far the best book on the subject. Written for instrumentalists and vocalists alike, this book/CD pack contains excellent solos and exercises that feature polyrhythmic concepts. Topics covered include: 6 over 4, 5 over 4, 7 over 4, 3 over 4, 11 over 4, and other rhythmic ratios; combining various polyrhythms; polyrhythmic time signatures; and much more. The CD includes demos of the exercises.
If you're unfamiliar with this book you ought to get aquainted because it's alot of fun and will open many doors. This revised second edition contains the two original books under one cover and includes a demonstration CD. Starting with the most basic polyrhythnms, three against two, Magadini shows you how it fits together and how to play it and then builds it up by adding 8th's, 16th's and triplets. Next comes three against four, five against four, and so onuntil you're playing seven, eleven, and thirteen against the beat. The exercises and solos are challenging at each stage while helping the polyrhythms flow naturally. Recommended for any musician... Martin Patmos
