"Rick Stojak's 'How to Build a Drum Groove' is an excellent foray into keeping
teaching simple and fun! I was not a music reader before I started
this book, but boy, it sure is turning me into one. And the extensive Song Index is genius!
All of these great songs that we all already know, listed in such a way that
upon first glimpse, you're already a leg up in learning. How cool is that?
By the time you're done with this book, you will be well on your way to
mastering the basics of rock drumming, which is what we all love to do!
I highly recommend 'How to Build a Drum Groove' to drummers of all ages!"
Rick's putting on the finishing touches on his new method book series called How To Build A Drum Groove.
Playing the drums for a rock band requires the stamina of a Premiership footballer, research suggests. Tests on Clem Burke, the veteran Blondie drummer, revealed that 90 minutes of drumming could raise his heart rate to 190 beats a minute.
Despite rock's reputation for unhealthy living, Dr Marcus Smith, from Chichester University, said drummers needed "extraordinary stamina".
A hour in concert could burn between 400 and 600 calories, he said.
Clem Burke, who provided the beat for hits such as "Heart of Glass", "Atomic" and "Call Me" was invited to take part in the eight-year project by Blondie fan Dr Smith.
It is hoped that the results could help develop outreach programmes for overweight children who are not interested in sport.
