Note: This book includes transcriptions of "grooves" so it likely does not have full and complete song transcriptions, just selections of songs.

The Commandments of the Half-Time Shuffle is the first book dedicated exclusively to learning about and playing the half-time shuffle. Complete with historical analysis and overviews of the lineage of the style, the book will equip drummers with all of the necessary tools needed to conquer one of the most beloved, yet mystifying, grooves in drumming history.

The book features photos, album cover art, motivational quotes, recommended listening, as well as transcriptions of the most definitive half-time shuffle grooves. Gain insight and wisdom from Zoro, one of the legendary masters of R&B drumming, and master the language of the triplet---the foundation of all shuffles. The Commandments of the Half-Time Shuffle is highly innovative, informative, inspirational, and is sure to be a classic!
