Advanced Funk Studies has been a staple for drummers for over 20 years. The new DVD with both Advanced Funk Studies and Contemporary Drumset Techniques is a must for drummers who wish to understand todays linear style of playing, rock, r & b, hip hop, funk and soul. Latham breaks down the excerises so its easy to find a groove that works with the music. Mr Latham also spends time talking about the importance of proper technique and shows the importance of a strong rudimental foundation. I found it very helpful, easy to follow, with excellent examples of some of the exercises. And more importantly how to incorperate them into to todays music.

I am a student of Rick's and let me tell you, it was these 2 videos and his book that made it my goal to study with Rick Latham privately. This DVD is actually a combination of Advanced Funk Studies and Contemporary Drumset Techniques, plus some new footage. Rick teaches you some KILLER development exercises that will not only polish your technique, but will make you a smarter and stronger player. If you work through the exercises on this DVD diligently and with a metronome, making sure that you strive for accuracy and with a good feel and groove, you will be well on your way to becoming a very solid and versatile drummer. Rick is easily one of the greatest instructors/clinicians in the world. I highly recommend any of his books and videos. I feel very fortunate to be studying with such a master.

I purchased Advanced Studies, full well knowing that it would be a repackage of the previous excellent eponymous video.
However, I was hopeful that the "Extras" would include more instruction, or at least updated musical interludes with new interpretations of funk, R&B, African or Latino style drumming.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. The video extras add very little to the overall original Advanced Studies.
On the plus side, the chapter markings in the original video make it easier to navigate.
This is still a great video, but I highly recommend that you purchase the Advanced Funk book and CD's as well. They contain a tremendous amount of rudiment work and major variations on the patterns shown on the video.

Rick latham is a pioneer for funk and jazz drumming. his ideas are original and great. if you use the dvd as he says you will not only learn some great licks, groves, and solos, but it will make you a much better drummer.
