Description:
This DVD is split into 2 main parts-double Bass Technique & Time Signature Explanation and application. Despite looking hungover as hell..Mike does a great job presenting in a friendly way which is fun and easy to understand. Firstly he explains his double bass technique in grooves (triplet to 8th notes etc) then in fills (demonstrates some great hand foot combo fills).
The DVD then goes into Time Signature explanation in a basic clear way without notation and goes on to show subdividing compound time signatures, then shows examples of time signature changes from their early albums with John Myung and Derek Sheridian.

Well worth a look
