Movie Reviews

If you are getting 1 - This is it
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After a 20 year absence from drumming.. i bought a drum set.. put it together and started playing. I ordered this dvd a few weeks later. Well the first thing I did after watching him set up the drums was take apart my drums and fix what i had done wrong.As far as playing.. Ive checked hundred of web sites, downloaded lessons, and purchased 4 other DVD's to learn.. This is the best BY FAR. Several good fills, grooves to jam to.. its great. I never write reviews on stuff I get from amazon.. but had to give praise.. Buy many, you can't learn to much, but if you are just getting 1, get this one.. if you're buying many.. this is a must have.Great DVD."
This should ship with every drum kit

"Depending on the drum brand you may or may not receive instructions on how to set up the kit, much less how to get started. To an aspiring new drummer this DVD will not only lead you through how to set up the kit in an optimum configuration - it will also take you through the basics of selecting sticks, strike zones on your drums, and how to adjust and use each piece of a standard kit.

I like the format, which is divided into Setting Up and Start Playing. The Setting Up part is full of information and tips. My husband has been playing for over 40 years and he learned a few things from this section (incredible as that may seem).

Start Playing provides a little fun and a lot of encouragement. After tips on selecting and holding sticks, and a quick overview of drums and pedals, you get three grooves that even a new drummer can quickly master - building confidence - and some excellent instruction on fills and rolls. A nice feature is the three play-along pieces, which adds even more fun to this DVD.

Igoe is a masterful instructor and accomplished drummer. You feel as though he's in the room with you throughout this DVD, and the wealth of knowledge - presented in easy to grasp bits - that he imparts is amazing. I also recommend getting Igoe's "Groove Essentials" (ASIN B00064YTKM) for anyone who has progressed into intermediate or better playing. It will take you to the next step."

"Very well done. This DVD teaches you everything from setting up your set to basic grooves that the pro's use. He also has some of his students come in and play but it's not what you think. I thought it would be some little 10 year old playing and sounding better than me. It's not, they make mistakes too. He goes over grip and how to hit the drum very well and to top it off you can download play along songs that they use in the video on the web site."
Best drum intro video out there

"A perfect DVD for someone new to drums. Tommy first walks you through each piece of equipment, shows you how to arrange your drums, hold your sticks, and not make mistakes from the beginning.But the best part is the 2nd half of the video where you get to learn to play. He teaches the basic rock groove, and then some variations - and throws in some fills to make it fun. As a total beginner to the instrument, I was very surprised to see how quickly I could play along to basic songs after just watching the video.Highly recommended."
