I wonder if anyone can recommend a book or two that would help me learn about some basic drumming patterns - and rhythms in general. I am thinking dance music.
I am quite new to electronic music-making - and to AM - though I understand some basics and musical notation and some theory and so forth from years of playing brass and wind instruments. FWIW, I am particularly fascinated with the music of Atom TM, aka Atom Heart, aka Uwe Schmidt, who started out as a drummer, I know, and who went on to make some incredible music. Some of his rhythms are proving impossible for me to decode, they're so clever and, well, odd.
Thanks in advance.
