Fusion: A Study in Contemporary Music for the Drums by : Kim Plainfield
The genre fusion; as the name implies; is a blend of many styles and influences. This book and CD utilize four tunes as a basis to show how this fusion-blending process can occur and expose you to major trends that exist. You are given unique step-by-step approaches to developing “fused” feels that are not just superficial pasting-together of styles; but truly new grooves of your making. In addition; there are many agility exercises to help you reach a high level of musicianship. Each of the style-evolutions and exercises is fully notated in the book and performed on the CD. These lessons culminate in a tune that incorporates what you have learned. The CD contains a demonstration performance of the tune; followed by a version of the tune without the drums for you to play-along. The book provides a drum chart and lead sheet.
