I've been a drummer on and off for the past 40 years - never professionally - with a long dry spell until last January when I purchased a new Roland V-Drum kit and hired a private instructor to get me started again. The instructor was amazed at the books I had used early on and throughout my life, some with hand written notes from one of my early instructors, Charles Perry, author of the Rockin Bass Drum. But I was missing a few books from my library that dealt specifically with 4-Way Independence. So, I purchased the mainstays including Gary Chester's New Breed II, Marco Minemann's Extreme Interdepence, and this book. I have to say that Dahlgren's 4-Way Coordination book is easy to work through. All exercises are written in either 2/4 or 4/4, and are easy to ready and quickly apply to the kit. I love this book so much that I may spend 30 minutes on it everyday. I enjoy the challenges it presents AND I see and hear the results in my playing. THIS IS A MUST HAVE BOOK for the intermediate and advanced player! To read more about my drumming experiences and practice routines, please visit my blog at adrummersblog.com.

Free open independence of limbs should be any drummer's goal. To be able to play any rhythm with any limb regardless of what the other 3 are doing. This book breaks you down from the ground up. Most drummers will immediately notice their left foot as the weakest link start to catch up to speed with the rest of their limbs with the initial melodic coordination exercises. This is not an easy book, you'll be humbled very quickly if you expect to blaze through this one. It's imperative to take your time on this stuff. You need to step up to this book with a zen-like patience and a child-like excitement to the challenges that await. One extremely important tip to getting through this book is to assign each hand and foot to a different drum. The obvious would be...

right hand = floor tom
left hand = snare
right foot = kick
left foot = hihat pedal

This is imperative because it allows you to memorize the pattern by ear once you've played it enough. Something that would be impossible to do effectively with both hands on the snare or each foot on a kick pedal. Good luck and be persistent. This book only works if you work on it. I personally don't do very well sight reading music. I learn best by ear, so I have transcribed pages into a midi sequencer and learned by ear with a good system used for tracking my progress with each exercise. I truly love this book. It's a monster.

I recently decided to start taking lessons as a way to help me sight read through this book. My teacher told me most of his students didn't really enjoy it, as the musical application of the ideas are not spelled out for you. They simply wanted to move onto learning patterns that had an immediate and obvious musical application. As other's have said this book isn't designed to teach you new grooves and patterns that can be lifted directly from the book and used in an immediate musical context without using your imagination. These have more of a drill type feel to them. Which is to be expected. This book is designed to give you limb interdependence. It goes after one goal in an extremely solid and thorough way. It's up to you to translate that interdependence into musical ideas yourself. Every drummer knows what it feels like when they hit a snag with a pattern that requires slow practice to master. If you thrive on chasing that dragon, get this book. You will be a better drummer for it.

My drum instructor was really excited when I showed him this book and actually knew the authors personally. This book simplifies the complexity of coordination by leaving interpretation up to the student...ie it will say LF...RH...LH and allows you to pick whatever drum or simble you feel comfortable with. Before you know it a subconscious independcy develops allowing each limb to think for itself

If you are seeking help with limb independence on the drumset this is a must buy. It's the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that you are seeking. Truly it is. It's not hard to use at all. In fact, it's extremely simple exercises, but they will indeed do what they say.

I just bought the book and I have only had it a few days. Yes, it's true that I can't speak from actual results yet, but just from starting in on these exercises I can see precisely how they are going to take me to full limb independence in baby-steps. All that's required now is for me to sit down and practice these though this book. I have no doubt at all that they will take me where I want to be in terms of limb independence. I can already feel it coming in the very first set of exercises.

Just as a tip for anyone one who buys, or owns, this book. The actual instructions are very brief. There really isn't much to say. The exercises speak for themselves. However they do say to play 2 bars of rhythm and 2 bars of exercises. They don't go into detail about that. What I realized they mean is to play two bars of groove (pick a groove of your own choice), and then two bars of exercises, drop back into your groove, then play the next two-bar exercise, and so on. Wow! That really helps and instantly gives these exercises a musical feel.

Also, some of the exercises are printed as eighth notes. You can put any kind of swing field on them you like. It's not about timing. All they are using the notes for is to convey which limb should play each note. So you can play these independence exercises to any rhythmic beat you so chose. It's not about rhythm, it's about limb independence. So it doesn't matter whether you're playing jazz, funk, rock, you name it. These exercises can be played with any musical feel you like. Just get a groove going and start playing these two-bar exercises, then two-bars of groove, and back and forth. You can't go wrong. You might even come up with some really cool beats of your own just from having gone through these independence exercises.

I can't recommend the book highly enough. Like someone else said, it's worth 20 stars if limb independence is your goal. You'll feel it coming as soon as you start in on these. Not to imply that it will come easy. You may need to start out slow, but you'll quickly feel that you're on the right path.

I'm certainly excited about this lesson book. Like some others have mentioned, it's quite unconventional in its approach, and as far as I can see this is the "secret method" I was seeking. The pot of Gold that I never believed existed.

Very good book that develops limb independence. Goes from easy drum beats to complicated coordination so you can develop comfortably to more complex drum beats
