Movie Reviews

Weckl dvd review
Randy Webber | Milton, Ontario Canada | 01/20/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"- spends alot of time showing of his chops with no explanation
- the basics that he shows are pretty basic, how to hold sticks, sitting on the stool, tuning.
- says you should buy somebody else's books to learn how to do what he does?!?if you are hoping to learn something from this dvd, i would pass. if you really like his style and sound and just want to watch him play for about 40 minutes, then this would be for you.I returned this dvd"
Rhythm King's Review

"This is an exellent video. When I watched it I absolutely loved it. Dave Weckl guides you through everything from tuning to playing your drums. If you are a new or begining drummer or you just want to get your chops up, this is the video to buy. I bought it when I was just starting drumming and it taught me a lot of things that I still use to this day. Dave Weckl is an exellent and influential drummer with some of the greatest skills that I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot of other drummers). In my opinion he is one of the best ever. I have seen a great deal of other drum and percussion videos and this one was easily the best. If you want to learn your way around the kit and the business of drumming or you just want to sharpen your skills this is the video for you."

"Dave's introduction to stick control is so eye-opening, that I continue to watch and rewatch those early sequences, at full speed and in slow motion. Each time I see something new and helpful in gaining the kind of stick control that a serious drummer must have.Meanwhile, I haven't even gotten to the bass drum and high hat sections.I wish I had seen this video 8 years ago when it first came out. It would have made a huge difference, considering the difference it has already made for me in the three weeks since I bought it."
Pave the way with Dave!

"He is a radical dynamic drummer and teacher. I found his video informative and challenging. He focuses on basic fundamentals and techniques that are vitally necessary for a drummers progress. He is precise and clean in his playing. You will notice the change in your own playing once you have emulated his moves and mastered his techniques. He gives you a positive outlook as to where your own drumming is at."
