                 edited by Murray Houllif

                      Based on the drum set artistry of Roy Burns, this book
                      is chocked full of exercises and practice techniques to
help drummers achieve a more relaxed technique that can be applied
to all drumming styles. With this technique comes increased speed,
power, endurance and finesse. It is suitable for drummers in the early
learning stages as well as experienced performers who want to fine-
tune their playing skills. A CD featuring four amazing extended drum
set solos performed by Roy clearly demonstrates what diligent practice
of these techniques can achieve. #21188, $22.95
