After seven years of anticipation, the Swiss-born drumming master Jojo Mayer continues his "Secret Weapons" educational series with part two ? now concentrating on foot technique. After watching the first part multiple times throughout and trying to understand the almost out-of-this-world analysis on almost every aspect of hand technique, Jojo throws in even more detailed and comprehensive collection. This 3-disc package is unique, as no one has ever gone so deep into the foot technique, breaking it into pieces and making even the most fundamental topics interesting. This is in order the drummers to dig in and make their drumming even more efficient and accurate.
Although the Part II is an informational overdose, the overall atmosphere throughout the video is light, and the lectures are often followed by an entertaining glance to the history of bass drum playing or a drum solo utilizing the latest technique.
This DVD truly is one of the best educational drumming videos out there, and with the Part I it makes a great pair, presenting hours of step-by-step analysis of drumming techniques from the most fundamental to the most sophisticated. Keep in mind that the "Secret Weapons" DVDs are headed for all, from beginner to pro, and therefore are a great buy for all drummers.
