  • Rock drumming system - anyone got it?

    Anyone of you guys got the rock drumming system? I've read it's not bad, but if any of you guys have used it and can let me know what you think? This rock drumming system review was useful, but still not sure.

    The review is good. Might mean there's no misinformation.

    What level are you at? How's your finances? Do you have aptitude? Do you have talent?

    None of those DVDs care.

      Check out The Esrkine Method. It is mostly jazz, but it starts out with a great foundation of rock beats, and many ideas in jazz (eg. "kicking" the band) really fill out a rock song. http://www.amazon.com/Erskine-Method-Drumset-Alfreds-Artist/dp/073903541X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1301768851&sr=1-1
      Also, if you have the money, getting lessons is a really good investment. A teacher will help you with everything from technique to reading. Most importantly, they'll be able to individualize your education, which no DVD or book can do.

        A teacher can also look at what you're doing and correct mistakes that are preventing you from doing it right. No DVD can do that. If you can afford it, lessons with a good teacher can go a long way to getting you at least started towards where you want to be.

          I like the Erskine book/DVD, but for relative beginners I prefer the Carmine Appice book. It's the most logically laid-out rock method book I've seen. I think the latest edition has a DVD, though I haven't seen it. What I don't like about the Erskine book is how quickly it leaps from basic jazz comping patterns to "Elvinisms". It's a big jump in skill level, and I've seen students stumble there quite a bit.

            +1. Nothing worse than a big pile of bad habits. Learn stick control right the first time!

              Groove essentials volume one...Tommy Igoe. Best learning tool I've seen. DVD gives you the visual. Book gives you the written along with full length play alongs and they are not cheesy. Good original tunes from top session players.
