Duple & Triple: The Essential Rhythms Book by Doug Stronach
Duple & Triple “clearly defines and teaches the most common rhythms used in pipe band music,” says Doug Stronach in the Foreword. Based on his belief that pipe band drummers should focus first on rhythms, then on rudiments, the book introduces monotone rhythm patterns for duples and triples, followed by sticking patterns and studies. Whether used as a companion to Stronach’s Pipe Band Snare Drum Tutor or as a separate resource, the material is important and useful for pipe band drummers. 63 pages.
