"CAMP JAM: ROCK SOLID DRUMS"
by Liberty DeVitto and Sean J. Kennedy
book and MP3 CD
Beginner to advanced drumset techniques
 

From an online interview...

----Why did you decide to write the book?

DeVitto: I get irritated when I hear a young drummer or a new drummer goes out and buys a video or a book by a drummer that is so advanced that even a well-seasoned player has a hard time following along. I believe the first beats you learn are the beats you with you for the rest of your drumming adventure. In the book, there are beats that every drummer starts to play when he or she sits down behind the kit, no matter how advanced they are. This is where you need to start.  Full interview here
