Book with CD - Hip Grooves for Hand Drums - How to Play Funk, Rock, & World-Beat Patterns on Any Drum by Alan Dworsky and Betsy Sansby.

You don't need a drumset to lay down a groove. All you need is one drum. It can be a djembe, a conga, or anything else you can get both your hands on. Whether your goal is to play in a band, jam in the park, play in a church group, or just drum along with your favorite CDs, this book will show you how, step by step.

There are no boring exercises in this book, just great dance grooves. Many of them are adapted from drumset patterns used in rock, pop, and funk music. Others are based on traditional African or Afro-Cuban rhythms. You can play all these grooves in a wide variety of musical styles and settings. And you can hear how each one sounds on the play-along CD that comes with the book. If you've never played a hand drum before, that's okay.

Hip Grooves will teach you how to make all the basic strokes on a djembe or conga in the very first lesson, using life-like illustrations to show how each stroke looks from the outside and detailed descriptions to explain how each stroke feels from the inside. And you don't have to know how to read music either. All the patterns are notated using simple box charts that even non-musicians find easy to understand.
