Editorial Reviews

After many years of selling LP's and CD's full of the wild mystery of music with no explanations and fewer apologies, Drag City is pleased to finally be able to give something back to the legions of wanna-be musicians that form our listening audience around the world. Complicated Drumming Technique is a first for us; an educational DVD teaching the craft of drum work (aka drumming) to beginners and experts alike. Respected comedian and television personality Fred Armisen brought percussionist Jens Hanneman to our attention with an ingenious DVD that opened our eyes to the responsibilities an million little victories that drummers everywhere experience behind the kit, unbeknownst to us. If we knew so little about it, then the rest of you are probably completely in the dark! Don't worry; Jens Hannemann's Complicated Drumming Technique can easily be yours as well.

I don't know anything about drumming, but I have heard of this guy somewhere so thought I'd give it a shot - I learned a lot from this video.

I ran into this drummer friend in a club and mentioned that I'm learning 9/21 time signature on the kit drum and he just looked at me with a bewildered expression.

It made me feel pretty good.

Love this video. We play it at the drum shop all the time. It's amazing how long it takes some people to realize it's not real.

I wonder if the previous reviewers thought Spinal Tap was a real documentary when it first came out. Musicians with a sense of humor will LOVE this DVD. Hilarious! Here is a review of this DVD from Kurt Gottschalk of Signal to Noise magazine: A different take on art rock (or not) is in the subtly hilarious COMPLICATED DRUMMING TECHNIQUE. Saturday Night Live's FRED ARMISEN nails the music instruction video as fusoid drummer Jens Hannemann, explaining the intricacies of inane time signatures and hi-hat techniques, complete with crap video effects. Like THIS IS SPINAL TAP, it doesn't allow being an informed parody to get in the way of its idiocy; it's a hoot!

I learned so much during Jens' lessons. I've been drumming for 15 years now, and after watching this I through everything I knew previously out the window. Mr. Hannemann is a true inspiration!
