Thanks for buying my DVD. I really hope you enjoy it. As you begin working with it, I want you to keep in mind that 99% of all drum grooves involve just single strokes and double strokes on the bass drum. That's all! I wish I had emphasized that more in my DVD. Singles and doubles! Focus on those 2 techniques, and you'll be in great shape. My video teaches those things, plus a zillion other things, so it can easily get overwhelming. Keep it in perspective, keep it enjoyable, and start by learning singles and doubles. Those 2 techniques can EASILY be learned in a couple of weeks. Anything above and beyond singles and doubles should be considered extra credit for fun. If you ever have any questions, feel free to email me through my website. I'll get your message quickly that way, since I'm not on the forum all the time. Best of luck!
