Dave Weckl: Back to Basics
Back to Basics
# # # #
Lots of information.
Begginers. Serves a good reminder about technique to intermediate and maybe professional drummers.
Starts with a solo and playalong. He then goes into the basics of snare drumming explaining grips and how to practice traditional grip. He then teaches double strokes and buzz rolls and how to play buzz rolls in time. He switches to brushes and teaches brushing techniques and how you can apply the brushes to the kit. He then shows bass drum techniques(heel up, heel down), talks about seating positions and teaches how to do doubles on the bass pedal. He then goes into coordination, introduces books that help with independence. He also explains how his kit is set up and talks about drum heights. Talks about coordination and soloing then talks about tuning and stuff like that.
