The purpose of Mel Bay's Fill Workbook is to expand the players' fill vocabulary by helping drummers create short fills. This is a flexible workbook that can be used by beginning and intermediate students and the more advanced drummer. Most playing situations are more about performing songs than solos, and for the drummer this means not only playing grooves, but also helping to cue the band into the various sections as they change. This book is a tool to help the drummer find new ways of playing short fills to break away from the "old favorites." The examples in Fill Workbook are meant to by used as a starting point to initiate ideas and are written for a basic drum kit set-up. The book can easily be modified by the teacher or player to suit the individual drummer's level and for varying drum kit set ups. The accompanying audio contains 35 examples of 1/2 beat, 1 beat and 2 beat fills. The first 2 sections of the book are demonstrated as written on the audio. Includes access to online audio.
