Absolutely not true. There are bass drum shots on both DVD's but it's (thankfully) not onscreen the entire time. But in answer to your question about the bass drum pattern, you use the thing that Tommy is so adamant about developing; your ears! The patterns are all explained slowly and clearly and you can see (on paper and included poster) and hear on the DVD exactly what he's doing. If you are interested in playing grooves in bands, Groove Essentials is the way to go. They totally changed my drumming vocabulary. Just ask my bandmates! :)
