Claus Hessler's Camp Duty Update examines the history of rudimental drumming in Europe and the United States, offering in-depth background information about the various stages of its development. To support the text, the book features traditional musical pieces that can be considered milestones of drumming---some dating back 200 years or more---along with contemporary interpretations of the songs. The accompanying CD provides MP3s of full performance and play-along tracks of the songs at varying speeds, and the appendices in the back of the book include rudimental exercises and reference material. An innovative approach to the study of rudiments, Camp Duty Update presents drummers with a comprehensive understanding of the essential elements in their musical language.
