Puzzles, Rhymes and Riddles:

Solutions in Odd Time Phrasing

My intention for writing this book is to give some insights and concepts to learn to hear and play odd time patterns and groupings. I have had the good fortune to work with some eccentric composers who have challenged my understanding and ability to play odd time music. I hope you find the material in this book intriguing, challenging and a valued  sourced to draw from in your dealing with complex patterns and groupings.

Bruce's book presents and breaks down all this to give intermediate and advanced students some serious concepts to chew on. Working each idea from several angles, this will be enough to keep even the most rhythmically discerning drummer busy.
