This book documents many of the pathways that Billy has taken to find his unique voice. The claves in this book are keys to playing authentic based rhythms and improvising on them. Learning different clave rhythms is similar to jazz musicians learning chord changes, voicings, and scale patterns which enable them to improvise on songs. Drummers are no different. The claves contained in this book open up rhythmic subdivisions, substitutions and a much wider vocabulary to draw upon than playing static beats. Call them systems, bell patterns, or claves, be assured that there is much freedom to be gained from owning these rhythms. The coordination required to play these rhythms will challenge and benefit every aspect of your playing.
