Heavy Left (2017)
A set of four snare solos and backing tracks. Though the solos can be played separately, Heavy Left was composed as one work in four parts - a progression of sorts through the rudiments, style of play and type of drum.
This 9x12 book contains comprehensive information about each solo, detailed scores including backing track cues and clock counters to help with practicing and an insightful foreword by West Point Principal Percussionist, David Bergman.
