    Default Most "fun" drum book you have?

    So my son and I have been doing sections from Carmine Appice's Ultimate Realistic Rock and have really enjoyed it. When I have spare time, I tend to drift to this as my go to book to practice as it just seems more "fun". This lead me to wonder what books you guys have the most fun using?

    I enjoy "Double Bass Drumming" by Joe Flacco. The tabs are simple to read with, hihat/ride, snare and (2x) bass drum notations. I found some drum tab books that resemble Zappa's "Black Page". Too much black ink on a page makes it hard to read due to my stigmatism.

    Right now I'm having a ton of fun with Jim Riley's Survival Guide For The Modern Drummer . Broad range of styles for play-along, and the songs are full length, not the ultra short examples you get so often.
    The boomy things:
    Mapex Orion Classic 6 pc
    The pingy/crashy things:
    K Custom Dark and K Darks
    A Customs
    Meinl Byzance
    Silken Sebring and Avus
    Dream Bliss
    More cowbells than I have cows.
    The other things:
    Roland TD9, Pintech drum triggers, Yamaha cymbal triggers

    That's the book I learned the basics on. I liked it, too.

    There are books that teach you how to hit things? How do you like that?

    If that ape at the start of 2001 had picked up 2 bones instead of 1, we probably would have had a 100,000 year head start on the rudiments.
