Re: Dave Weckl
Dave Weckl would be my number one choice. I just recently got back into drums after a 30 year break and looked into this site thoroughly and decided to go with all Dave weckl's dvd's and lessons along with Portnoy and minneman and Jack bennett. Dave's dvd's span a number of years and styles as near as I can tell and he is constantly progressing. I dare say he could play any type of music. That being said I have learned from absolutely everyone on this site. Dave switches back and forth at times from traditional grip and matched grip when it is better to do so which makes perfect sense to me being almost exclusively traditional from way back to my drum teacher who was originally a drum and bugle core lad turned rock. I'm no expert and everyone has their own style but Dave just keeps getting better. He's starting to flow nicely and he's still young.
