101 Drum Circle Rhythms For The Hand Drum NR

Amazon Instant Video

My Drum Circle Rhythms video is 2 hours of great ethnic drumming beats for the hand drum from around the world. Great for Djembes, Congas, Doumbeks, Bongos, & more. Each rhythm is about a minute long. Lots of time to absorb, and get into them. An easy to follow numbered set, just watch & jam along. The entire video is a close up shot on the djembe, with no distractions, & simple hand technique.

If you are looking for how to have good technique, it's not here. If you are looking for a bunch of rhythms that can be used in drum circles or as part of Western music playing and composition, this is OK. I would have given more stars if each rhythm included some sort of notation; it is a bit difficult to distinguish between his "slaps" and tones. And if he showed them in a slower speed rather than just jumping right into a medium to fast tempo, for newer drummers to pick up easier, it would be better. I was going to gift this for a friend new to drumming, but a beginner will have a hard time following many of the rhythms.

I run drum circles for folks who have either never touched a drum in their life or are VERY experienced players looking for something different to do. My problem is that I am not very inventive with rhythms to teach as I just play what I feel and that usually winds up being the same pattern over and over again.

This DVD is amazing. It actually has 125 different rhythms in groups of 5 per DVD "track" and is very easy to follow. Shannon is a lefty so it's like you are playing in a mirror if you are a right handed drummer. I have already put together two pieces with three different rhythms each to put together at my next circle. This includes a bass line and bell track too.

I will be using this DVD for a LLOONNGG time. Thank you Shannon for making this and I look forward to getting your book as well!

I somehow thought I was going to get a dvd... my granddaught likes the drums and thought she might use this as self instruction. I didn't even last minutes and didn't give it to her.
