Programme Notes / Performance Details :The second edition of the best-selling original Groove Essentials features a book and CD package with 53 brand new grooves and over 100 variations for intermediate to advanced players. The companion play-Along book and CD contain over 90 tracks, including every song from the DVD in their full-length versions, minus the drums; allowing drummers to expand their skills by playing any of the grooves with a band and recording themselves on audio or video (optional) to help facilitate the learning process. These tracks also supply a variety of fill-in and soloing opportunities to challenge advanced players.In addition, the book features Igoe’s extended “global tours” that will test even the most seasoned professional’s chops, creativity and stamina and, as a “first of its kind” bonus, there is a full-length orchestral play-along track designed to provide a taste of playing in a full orchestra, complete with multiple moving tempos, dynamics and feels!

This book and its precursor, 1.0, are “groove encyclopedias” with an incredibly wide perspective on drumset playing. Each book presents about 50 grooves, plus variations, at a variety of tempos. The grooves span from easy to very difficult, and cover a huge variety of styles, including rock, funk, R&B/hip-hop, and jazz. The second book builds on the first in difficulty, as well as presenting some new ideas: odd-meter grooves and a more advanced look into “groove construction”. Not only are these books some of the most exhaustive method books available, they are also very intuitively laid out. To top it off, Igoe’s sense of humor makes them downright fun!
