"This is a nice dvd, introducing you to some easy tips and simple ideas to get better technique, the only problem I had is that one of the first things Michael shows you is that he uses a custom bass drum pedal, with no heel plate, and teaches heavily from that point. How are you supposed to follow him when you don't have the same type of pedal he does, thus, you can't get the same feel or adaptation from what he's teaching??? Having said this, applying what he shows is fairly straight forward, and for the price, all drum dvds are worth watching, you're sure to pick up a few tips along the way."
