Respected and accomplished drummers Hugh Cameron and Doug Stronach joined forces to offer this collection of traditional drum scores for massed bands. This is not a beginner's tutor; this book is intended for drummers with "good basic and intermediate level skills which typically would take a year or more of regular instruction and practice to develop." "The book includes all the details and information necessary to learn the correct phrasing and musicality of the scores and is a must for any drummer interested in learning to play traditional pipe band drumming."
The CD that comes with the book is extremely useful and has 43 tracks. On the CD the scores are played at four tempos: beginner, novice, intermediate, and marching. By using the balance knob on your stereo, you can select how much metronome you want to hear, and you can play along with a piper alone or with the drum track.
