3 the third book in the musical drumming series is aimed at students who have finished Musical Drumming, Book Two and any Competent drummer looking to improve their playing and understanding of advanced rhythms, grooves and time signatures Piece 13: Quintan

4 The focus of the musical drumming method is application. understanding the theory and systematically playing many variations of a groove is crucial step in learning that technique well. However if the final step of applying that skill to pieces of music is not taken, often that knowledge remains more theoretical than practical. Piece 10: The Afro-Cuban Hillbillies

14 Section Four: Time signatures An incredibly misunderstood area of music. My hope in writing this section, is to destroy the mystique and trepidation muso's often feel towards this area of music. With a little understanding and technique it can be quite accessible. Hopefully in the future the trend started by artists like 'Tool' and 'Sting' will continue and non 4/4 grooves will be used more in popular music. Piece 15: Now and Then
