This is identical to Syncopation by Ted Reed, mistakes and all, but with additional rhythm notation theory, explanatory details and CD. The only issues are the CD has identical tracks for Accented Notes, Lessons 1 and 2, and that these and those for the 8 Syncopation Exercise are all in 12/8. Also, it doesn't explain that the study exercise for Accented 16th Note Lesson 5 is created by reading down the columns with no repeats (this is stated in the second Reed book - Bass Drum Technique). Besides these critical problems, Basix is the right kind of enhancement on the original classic.
