Lick Library, one of the world’s leading suppliers of tuition DVDs, has just released a series of Drum Legend DVDs encompassing arguably the greatest and most influential drummers the world has seen. From Chad Smith and Taylor Hawkins to Dave Grohl, John Bonham, and Stewart Copeland, the series brings you up close to the legends and explains in an easy-to-follow format how to play their most famous tracks.
The DVDs explain in detail essential drum rhythms, grooves, and techniques and those must-know fills and patterns. Each song is broken down into bite sized parts, covering beat by beat what you need to know to play like these legends. The series covers the greatest and most often requested tracks to learn. From Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” to The Police’s “Roxanne” these are definitive video guides complete with backing tracks to play along to.
The John Bonham DVD really gives you the inside track on the dynamic grooves of arguably the greatest rock drummer of all time. Accessible to drummers of all levels of ability, this DVD is packed full of ideas for fills, improvising, and grooves and covers five classic tracks including “When The Levee Breaks,” “Good Times Bad Times,” “Black Dog” and “Fool In The Rain.”
Lick Library has perfected a unique format to help drummers really play like their heroes. Imagine a one-to-one lesson focusing on Chad Smith, the powerhouse behind the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, where you can study over and over again his intense funk grooves on “Give It Away” or “Californication.” Watch up a close our top drum teacher explain and demonstrate Stewart Copeland’s unique style on tracks such as “So Lonely,” “Walking On The Moon,” “Message In A Bottle” and “Can’t Stand Losing You.”
The Dave Grohl DVD focuses on the influential, multi-talented musician, songwriter, and drummer, covering tracks from Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, and Foo Fighters. The DVD will help you get a real understanding of the musicality in Dave’s playing as well as his sense of power. Finally the Taylor Hawkins DVD covers five killer Foo Fighters tracks and like the other DVDs analyzes the songs and gives an insight into his playing.
All the DVDs are presented by Pete Riley, who has worked with artists as diverse as Republica, Motorhead, and more recently Keith Emerson of ELP fame. He is a regular contributor to Rhythm magazine and author of three bestselling drum tuition books.
