I'm with you man. I posted the Thomas Pridgen vid on my facebook page and said the exact same thing.If I had the option I'd choose neither and go for face to face tuition.
I have no experience of Mikes tuition but Drumeo to me is very intimidating. What I cannot stand is some of the guests lessons. Ill give Thomas Pridgen as an example. These world class drummers dont seem to go out of their way to break things down so its relatable to a beginner or intermediate player.
Calling 5/7/9 grouped rolls 'easy' is not very comforting as to me they are not easy at all. To a world class drummer yes they would be, but I am not a world class drummer. The only ones that I've felt comfortable with are Flo Mounier and Sonny Emory. The others I've watched just go mental, get drooled over by Jared or whoever else presents the lesson and then say everything is easy when its not.
I couldn't agree more, Odd-Arne!Drumeo is Jared's baby, but it's something completely different. It's a huge resource that has something for everybody. Lots of teachers, lots of courses, new lessons every day...
Yes, BUT Drumeo wrapped many of those videos into courses on particular topics. And that makes it much more structured and manageable than Youtube, I think.It's a humongous libarary and there's way too much for anyone to go through
