Default Re: Mini-Vid - Buddy Rich Stick Trick

Derrick,

You're killing me, man...

Your videos are, in my opinion, the best way for these things to be taught. There are certain individuals who like to portray these things as "deep, mysterious secrets", which can only be divulged after we purchase the "Secrets of ... (whatever)" videos for $50 each, because after all, learning how to play drums should be very serious, tedious, expensive and above all, mysterious. (Not!)

Thank you for your correct and very down to Earth approach to these things. I know they'll help a lot of drummers... especially younger players, and possibly help them keep a sense of humor and humility too.

Do more!
