This play-along package presented by Vic Firth has been the world's top drum method for the past ten years. It has now been re-released with access to online audio for download or streaming for even more ease and flexibility. It features over 6 hours of music, including 47 grooves and feels from all over the world – most in two tempos – 88 tracks in all, truly professional sketch charts and incisive text by Tommy. An interactive groove experience for all level drummers with rhythm tracks that feature some of New York City's top musicians. Works in conjunction with the best-selling Groove Essentials DVD.
For beginning drummers: simple rock beats with a real band feel; for intermediate drummers: syncopated, 16th-note grooves as well as jazz/swing feels; for advanced drummers: challenging world grooves, as well as jazz shuffles, jazz waltzes and R&B feels.
