Re: DRUM INSTRUCTION DVD & BOOK REVIEWS
Hey you drummer-guys !!
Yes I am new in the forum and have never heard of it before.
But: I played the drumset 11 years now and all by self-education.
So i ve tried perhaps twenty books and dvds ... and this are the best to start with and later on to go on with ( in my oppinion and in oppinion of lot of other drummers)
First : go to Vic-firth homepage an dowload the 40 rudiments videos for free. learn all and keep on playing them (try them with your feets too )
Best Books and DVD s (from beginning to advanced) :
1. G.L. Stone Stick Control for the snaredrummer (try to play many of the exercices with feet as well and share the strokes on the drumset)
2. G.L. Stone Accents and Rebounds for the snare drummer (try to play many of the exercices with feet as well and share the strokes on the drumset)
3. Thommy Igoe Groove Essentials DVD and Book ( Great !!!) -> to learn all basic grooves
Now its getting advanced (learn 4-way independece) :
4.marvin Dahlgren : 4 way coordination
5. Garry Chester : The new Breed
Now the brain is burning ( metric modulatian , odd times , Displacement )
6. Garry Chaffee - Rhythm and Meter Patterns
7. Gavin Harrison : Rhytmic illusions ( Book and DVD ) Great book and Great DVD 6 stars to it !!!
all listed books and dvds got 5 stars by me and by other (amzon.de / amazon.com)
Follow this and I will think you become a great drummer !
