This inspiring three-volume instructional series teaches you to play the drums using carefully selected beats and fills from hit songs that shaped modern music. Level 1 teaches you to play with over two dozen authentic rock beats and fills by legendary drummers including John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Tre Cool (Green Day), Dave Grohl (Nirvana), and many more. You'll also learn the parts of a drumset, setup and tuning, drumstick and drumhead selection, how to hold the drumsticks, hand and foot technique, and how to read music. Plus, you'll learn to play flams, drags, and one- and two-handed patterns for open and closed hi-hat. Tips, tools, and terms are used throughout to introduce key drumming concepts at just the right pace. The DVD correlates with all the lessons, beats, and fills in the book.
