This book, with its two audio CDs, is the closest you'll come to being able to actually take lessons with the drumming legend himself who is no longer with us. The inclusion of Dawson talking about and demonstrating some of the lessons himself, is the icing on the cake. Whether or not you
are a fan of Alan Dawson's style, you'll find something of value in this book. Not only will it help improve your sight reading skills but it will increase your overall technique and four-way coordination as well. Highly recommended for drummers of all experience levels from beginners through advanced. After an introduction by the author John Ramsay, Alan's bio by Dean Anderson, and a discography by Michael Haggerty, the book is divided into four main chapters. Each chapter covers a different facet of Dawson's lessons in detail.
