That said, watching this DVD I picked up some amazing things to imitate -- his amazing ambidexterity with the high hat; why play it with the right hand when it's on the left side of your set -- just play mainly with the left hand. Also the single handed roll and bass techniques are amazing and advanced.
Buy it only if you are an advanced drummer.
