Subj: Re: [kl] What's a good book to practice rhythms?

I'd say almost anything you can get your hands on that has different
thythmic figures in different combinations...!! There are books out there
for studying rhythms (mine are Scandinavian so I guess they aren't relevant
for most of you but if anyone's interested I can find out the titles later)
which are great, but you can also sit down with the stuff you play yourself
and try to read only the rhythms.

A more specific thing could also be to go find a book for drummers.. it has
the notes all on a line, so it's easier to read the rhythms - just like a
rhythm-training book - and drummers *do* have to learn alot of rhythms so
I'm sure most people who want to work on their rhythm-reading can find "a
nut" or two (or a lot) to work with there..

Hope this helps.
