Voted Best Drum DVD 2003 by Modern Drummer Magazine!

With 2 DVDs and over 4-1/2 hours of footage, the Hudson Music Steve Smith: Drumset Technique and History of the US Beat is a virtual encyclopedia of drum set techniques, styles, and concepts! Drumset Technique (Disc One) - Steve explains hand and foot technique in unprecedented detail and gets to the core of what drummers need to know in order to improve their feel and technical skills. Segments include hand technique, foot technique, the art of practice, exercises, licks and phrases, independence/interdependence, implied metric modulations, plus 4 extended solo drum pieces. History of the U.S. Beat (Disc Two) - With the help of an all-star band, Steve explains the evolution of the drum set in U.S. music - how the drum set was first used in all the major styles and how closely related all the styles are. Segments include early New Orleans jazz, big band, bebop, rhythm and blues, country, blues, gospel, rock, funk, and jazz/rock. In addition, Steve's group Vital Information plays 7 complete tunes that feature applications of the techniques and complex rhythms explained in Disc One.

Special Features: Extensive bonus footage including alternate-take drum solos, a brilliant hi-hat solo and hi-hat tutorial, alternate band performances, a camera-switching option, optional running commentary by Steve, a listening list, a reading list, and more! Total running time (for both discs): 4 hours, 38 minutes.

If you have a library of drum videos like me, this DVD is a must have. Both beginner and advance players will learn from Steve Smith. Each lesson is very well explained. The DVD is worth your money.
