|Drummer Instructional Videos|
With the rise of YouTube and Drumeo, the good ol' "how the fuck does he do that" DVD has begun to phase out. This list gives regard to the fallen ones. I'll add them as you comment them.
|1||Strapping Young Lad|
Once I had become familiar with Death, I soon became a huge fan of Gene Hoglan and everything he's ever done. This video came with FUCKING M&M'S WITH THE MAN'S FACE ON THEM. I still have those M&M's somewhere. Fucking M&M's.
I'd like to formally call out John Longstreth for the video he was supposed to put out a few years ago. Jipped some superfans out of $12,000 and never made shit. Sucks because this guy absolutely rips. I used to tech for a promoter in my town and saw this put on the best extreme metal drum performance I've ever fucking seen up close and was incredibly stoked when I heard a video was supposed to happen, so fuck this guy for ripping off all of his biggest fans. I'm glad I was too broke to contribute at the time.
|3||Liquid Tension Experiment|
This one isn't purely a drummer's instructional video if I remember right, but mesmerizing nonetheless. My love for Portnoy began at a very young age.
Bernard "Pretty" Purdie! Hot damn is this guy a virtuoso. Just go to his Wikipedia page and ogle at the sheer mass of his album credits list.
Gavin Harrison's Rhythmic Horizons. I'll have to admit that King Crimson and Porcupine Tree are foreign to me! I know well that they're regarded very highly on Sput, and I am just waiting for the right time to get into them. Any well-known prog drummer's music is gonna be right up my alley, I've just been on a black metal/post metal kick lately.
