Enhance your drumming skills with Stick Control, the ultimate guide to kickstarting your drumming skills to its maximum potential.

George Lawrence Stone's Stick Control is the original classic, often called the bible of drumming. In 1993, Modern Drummer magazine named it one of the top 25 drumming books of all-time. In the words of the author, this is the ideal book for improving "control, speed, flexibility, touch, rhythm, lightness, delicacy, power, endurance, preciseness of execution, and muscular coordination," with extra attention given to the development of the weak hand.

This book features:

  • Hundreds of basic to advanced rhythms
  • Single-beat combinations
  • Triplets
  • Short roll combinations
  • Flam beats & triplets
  • Dotted notes
  • Short roll progressions

Stick Control

I use to have this Book some 6+ Years ago ! It’s great for Warm Ups and Basic Practice!


It’s an improvement over a typical bound book. Always better to lay it flat!

Very Convenient

It’s a pleasure to be able to read music while playing and not have a page flip over on me.

Great job guys!

I've had this book for decades, and beaten them up through the years, great idea! Now I can fold the page and not worry about tearing it up.
