Beginning Drums the fun informal approach for all ages! Designed to quickly prepare the absolute beginner to join a rock, blues or county band by skipping the formalities & jumping right into the real beats used in today s popular dance bands. The fun approach to beginning drums! Learn the most widely used beats for rock, country, blues & pop styles. Paul Murski will transform the complete beginner into a formidable drummer in only a few practice sessions. There is no drum instruction like this on the market today because Paul starts right off showing you how to play your first song. It s designed to get you ready to play in your first band, & do it in the quickest, most professional way possible. You will learn 10 beats for basic rock, country 2-step, waltz, blues, punk, swing, reggae, polka, hard rock, rap boogie woogie, rhythm-n-blues, slow rock, reggae, disco & swing, but more importantly, you will learn which beat is appropriate for which song, & how to determine which beat to use for any song that your band wants to play. On the video, Paul jams with his family band & his oldest son brings in his punk band to show Dad how to teach the punk-rock style. Perfect for all ages, Paul even brings in his 4 kids (ages 6-14) so that they can show you what they ve learned from this great drum teacher. If you d like to skip all the formalities & go right to playing the drums, then this video is for you! Oh yea, there s a surprise lesson at the end of the video! *What kind of drum set & accessories do I need to get started? Answer: You don t actually need any drums at all. Paul shows you how to set up cardboard boxes to practice on, so all you have to buy is a pair of drum sticks. When you re ready for a real drum set, any beginning set will do fine. (new or used) Most companies make small sets for kids. You need: a kick drum (bass drum), snare drum, high hat (symbol), ride symbol, a small tom tom (no floor tom necessary) & a pair of drum sticks. *What am I really getting myself into if I think I d like to try the drums? Answer: You have to learn to do 3 slightly different things at the same time. Your right hand is doing one thing, your left is doing another, while your foot is doing another. The good news is that Paul has taken all the tedium out of this "juggling" act, by giving your the symbol first, adding bass drum next (then letting you practice those together till you get comfortable, then (& only then) adding the snare drum to the first two things. Your television screen is split into 4 quadrants, allowing you to see what s going on with each piece at all times. So easy! No tedium!
