Ted Reed's Syncopation is a classic. A lot of guys play it through straight, get a handle on reading and playing syncopated rhythms and then put the book on a shelf. But there's more to this book than meets the eye.. .
[li]After playing the book straight thru, try playing the figures with your feet to enhance your bass drum technique.[/li]
[li]Try playing a straight 8th note ride pattern with your right hand and playing the syncopated figures in the book with your left on the snare.[/li]
[li]Then do the same thing with a swing feel.[/li]
If you have this book on your shelf, dust it off and try some of these ideas. If you don't have Syncopation yet, get a copy - it's a must have for every drummer's library.
