5X5 Rock: Double Bass Drum Book/CD - In this second "5x5 Rock" play-along book by Klaus Usmann, the focus is on the technique of playing two bass drums (double bass). This very special drum style has fascinated many drummers since its inception. Jazz musicians such as Louis Bellson or Buddy Rich became masters of the craft of playing two bass drums. Their skills inspired a whole generation of Rock drummers in the late 60s such as Ginger Baker (Cream) to copy their great Jazz heroes and rock music was greatly enriched by this innovative playing technique. Over the years, more and more drummers were attracted to his technique and their unique hammering beats created the foundation for fresh styles of Rock music. Examples are Mikkey Dee of Motorhead, Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Joey Jordison from the band Slipknot or Simon Phillips (TOTO). The original songs by Usmann on the CD are composed in the style of these bands so that now you have the unique opportunity of becoming a member of your favorite band! Five different tempos allow each student to learn the innovative technique and put it into action. It's not absolutely necessary that you work your way up to the fastest tempo.
