Comments about Hudson Music Jojo Mayer Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer 2-DVD Set:
In "Secrets of the Modern Drummer," Jojo Mayer is teaching the hand / stick technique that one needs to play successfully. He starts with the basic position, teaching the German grip, the modified German grip, the French grip, and the Traditional grip. From there he goes on in vast depth to teach how, with varying body mechanics, one can do incredible things with drum sticks. This is a very needful and important teaching material, suitable for all levels of players. An advanced player might start with the second DVD in the set (this is a two DVD set). A local drum dealer stated that he improved his drum skill level by two steps with this DVD series. It might be added, however, that Jojo is teaching stick technique, not grooves. If you want to know how to play different grooves, you might try out Tommy Igoe's "Groove Essentials" series of DVD's. In short, I highly recommend this DVD set; you will not be disappointed, no matter what your skill level. I am learning how to make sticks "come alive" in my hands. It's great.
