Comments about Alfred Jungle Drum 'n' Bass (Book/CD):
Johnny Rabb does a very excellent job in "Alfred Jungle Drum n Bass" by taking the mystifying genre of DnB/Jungle and dissecting and illustrating just about every possible drum pattern, it seems, typically used in DnB music. He starts with basic 8th note patterns then works you up to very complex, syncopated 16th note patterns with buzzes and rolls. This is the most excellent source for DnB percussion theory I've ever seen! He also has a section in there at the end that gives a primer on basic electronic devices used to produce such music in this type of genre.I?m inspired to transcribe such patterns back from the live domain into the midi/digital realm and create my own drumloops using SONAR and Fruity Loops. I was prepared to spend a ton of money on prefab drumloop libraries. But now this allows me to focus on individual drum samples so that I may program such into professional quality loops. And for a book that was released in 2001, its techniques are still in the pocket. A+!
