The local Sam Ash Music store in Westminster, California hosted a drum clinic with Kofi Baker last week. Here are some photos from the event. The clinic also served as a book release for 'The Forgotten Foot'. Kofi played several solos, fielded questions, and handed out raffle prizes at the end. Thanks to Sam Ash for hosting the event, and for supporting the book. Throughout the rest of the year Kofi will be playing more clinics. Click on the link below to see if he will be in your area.

The Forgotten Foot is done and now available!! It is awesome to see the finished product and to be hearing from drummers that have purchased the book.
This is the cover of the book. The photo is Kofi Baker at a concert.
I co-wrote this drum method with Kofi Baker. Kofi is the son of legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker. Kofi learned from his father and a lot of those lessons are reflected in the book. The purpose of the book is to highlight the importance of left foot independence and build a left foot that is an asset not a liability. The book goes through beginner to advanced lessons. There are six chapters which include Fundamentals, Rudiments, Rock Beats & Fills, Jazz & Shuffle, Double Bass and Foot Patterns. A CD is also included with the book.
The book is available mostly online right now, but Sam Ash music stores will have the book soon if they don't already. Here is a list of some of the vendors that are selling the book.
Thanks to anyone who already purchased the book, and it would be great if you could write a short review on any of the above listed websites. Thanks again and take care,
