Modular Drumming: Chad Wackerman’s Introduction to “Rhythm Words”

“You never want to sound like you’re playing an exercise” — master drummer and educator Chad Wackerman unveils the concept of modular drumming, and how “rhythm words” should be studied and played on the drums.

A phenomenally skilled jazz and rock drummer, Chad is an authority on the teachings of Murray Spivack [Murray taught Vinnie Colaiuta, David Garibaldi, Louis Belson, Brooks Wackerman and many others.] Chad has amassed a remarkable body of work including a seven-year association with Frank Zappa. Chad’s “rhythm words” can be found on records by James Taylor, Barbara Streisand, Steve Vai, Andy Summers, Men At Work, Ed Mann, Albert Lee, Colin Hay, Dweezil Zappa, Pasqua/Holdsworth/Haslip/Wackerman Group, Terry Bozzio, Carl Verheyen and David Garfield. He is a first-call studio drummer and world-renowned educator, no wonder he is so knowledgeable about modular drumming.
