The complexity of Indian rhythm is phenomenal and legendary. Anyone who has ever seen a classical performance of tabla, pakhawaj, mridangam or ghatam, is unlikely to forget it. However, the rhythm is not bound to the technically demanding traditional Indian instruments. Thanks to the rhythm syllables used in traditional teaching (bols in North India / konnakol in South India) one can learn the Indian rhythm system without knowledge of Indian instruments and use it to play other instruments. Pete Lockett's extensive and profound textbook Indian Rhythms for Drumset has been written especially for drummers to enable them to adopt Indian rhythm to their set.

Indian Rhythm for Drumset consists of a 136-page textbook in large format and a data CD with over 200 MP3 examples played by Pete Lockett, bringing to live nearly all the material of the book. After a brief introduction to Indian rhythms, the syllabic system and the notation used in the book for drumset with bass, hi-hat, snare and two toms, you can dive into more than 100 pages with systematically building up exercises. The focus is on the application of South Indian rhythm concepts to jazz, rock, funk and other styles. It covers, inter alia, phrase development, groove, syncopations, rhythmic modulations, complex stick patterns and solo development. Some examples of Pete Lockett's teaching are presented by him for free on his website in five videos.
