Stanton Moore Groove Alchemy DVD
# # #
Very explorative into the world of funk grooves from a limited collection of drummers, but none of them are explained; only played at a medium-fast tempo.
Intermediate-Advanced drummers looking to largely expand their collection of funk grooves on hi-hat/kick/snare.
In this video, Stanton demonstrates the grooves of Clyde Stubblefield, Jabo Starks, John Bonham, and Zigaboo Modeliste, as well as a few less known others. All he does is play the grooves at the speed of the original tracks, not breaking anything down or discussing sticking or technique. Maybe I bought it with the expectation of being able to take something from it, but I was not able to. He plays with his trio on some tracks, which is awesome, but it's only fun to watch. Again, not much to gain for most drummers.
