An LP Marketing Taster Promo DVD - take care

"this DVD 'An introduction to Hand percussion' featuring Wilson Chembo Corniel is an LP Marketing Taster Promo DVD - take care !
What a shame marketed as an intro more than 2/3rds are promos for LP (Latin Percussion vendors) and a some on how to setup and
tune a conga set.
So OK why not make this 1/3rd with a leaflet inserted along with your equiptment.
The feature playing by Wilson was ONLY 1/3rd of the CD but almost worth it - (else there would only be 1 star).
He did Tumbao, Mambo, and if you did not blink, Bolero, 6/8 and Bomba.
Why not provide the patten instructions as a leaflet insert along with the DVD if it was going to be so brief.
Why not a play along for each pattern and get rid of the LP promo !!
I would recommend Basic Afro-Cuban Rhythms by Ricardo Monzon ISBN: 087639030 to start with and Conga Drumming: A Beginners Guide to Playing With Time Alan Dworsky, Betsy Sanby ISBN:963880101 for beginner and Intermediate Conga players also
