But, you're going to want to sit back and watch, listen and learn from what he does. He's really something to behold. As for some of the ensemble stuff and DJ accompaniment--well, some of it's just a bit goofy for me. Still, this is a refreshing break from videos that are intended to be stepwise instructional. Oh--you don't need 5 drums to get the ideas.
I have 6 instructional videos for the conga. This one is by far the best. As a bonus, the audio and video are surprisingly good. If you're a beginner, don't expect to learn basic techniques. Do, however, expect a show of all the different things you can do. If you're an intermediate-to-advanced player... well, set your drums up in front of the TV and get ready to wear out your VCR! Either way, it's a fun ride.
