Announcing BROAD STROKES snare solo collection

We are absolutely thrilled to announce Broad Strokes, by Rick Dior, a collection of snare solos for the experienced player created by a true musical chameleon.

This 140-page book consists of 31 cleverly-written solos designed specifically to explore the contrasts between orchestral and rudimental playing styles as well as “combination” solos that combine the two approaches in real-world musical scenarios. Lastly, a section of “specialty” solos goes a step further by focusing on specific musical genres and unusual techniques or effects common in drum set performance.

Solos are accompanied by in-depth introductions and exercises to help the player study and prepare. A CD-ROM is included containing audio performances (both with and without a click track) by Dior himself.

Today’s percussionists face a wide variety of musical challenges. Broad Strokes represents a well-rounded approach to developing the dexterity and technique needed to be a truly versatile player.
