With Elements, drummer John Favicchia presents a comprehensive system to improve your drumming vocabulary and improvisational skills. After presenting the elements---one-beat variations of basic sixteenth-note and triplet rhythms---Favicchia shows you how to execute accent figures in any place in the measure, play accents in any desired position combined with double-stroke rolls, orchestrate all your ideas in more creative ways around the kit, improvise with much more freedom, recognize and execute any given ensemble figure encountered on a chart, solo around the hits while playing with a band (no matter where the hits fall), and more. Included is an MP3/data disc jam-packed with examples from the book and play-along charts.
