Takes some of the mystery out of drums,
This review is from: Benny Greb The Language of Drumming (DVD)
I am an intermediate student. I felt a little stuck in my playing... like I wasn't sure what my next step was. So when I saw the Benny Greb was coming in town for a clinic, I bought a ticket and purchased the DVD hoping for a little inspiration. I was not disappointed.
This video is going to change my life for sure. I've only had it for a week, and I am happily learning and playing the rudiments (not my most favorite part of my practices). The "rhythmic alphabet" is a brilliant concept that is SO simple and easy to remember. Assigning words to odd groupings is a ridiculously simple concept, but is REALLY helpful. The exercize he gives using your voice and clapping is awesome... now I can practice drums while I'm in the check-out line, waiting at the doctor's office or stuck in traffic. The concepts in the video literally give you unlimited amount of ideas to draw upon.
For the seasoned drummer, you may not consider this DVD groundbreaking, but I guarantee you it will help you to become more creative and a better player. For the beginner/intermediate student, it will take some of the mystery out of drumming.
