Well, it's this or Jojo, isn't it? The Jojo option is best for the advanced drummer who wants or needs to get deeper and deeper into the possibilities of what can be done with a pair of hands and a couple of drum sticks. There's lots of jargon and slow-mo shots of the sticks flying out of Jojo's hands like Majick Johnson's basketball.

Tommy, on the other hand (yes!) is going to cut through the fog and show us all a practical approach to hand technique that can be followed by those of us taking their first steps in the world of drumming as well as those advanced players among us who just want to make sure they keep their hands working efficiently and healthily.

The Great Hands curriculum works towards the development of a rudimental warm-up routine. There are three, Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Tommy is great at explaining his approach to learning the basic rebound and accent strokes and explains each rudiment very clearly. We also get to see him working out with his students.

I use this DVD with all my students and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a no-nonsense guide to hand technique.

Once you get this down, get the Jojo one and freak yourself out.

When I found this DVD I was at a scary point with my drumming. I had pains in my wrists and thought I might have to give up playing (seeing as drumming is my source of income this was not a nice thought) Since getting the DVD I never have pains. I haven't changed my technique just make sure I spend long enough using his warm up. I also use the warm up techniques with my students and they seem to appreciate the importance of a good warm up after my scare story's

Tommy Igoe is the best. Easy to understand and very practicle. I've amassed a number of these learnig DVDs and I keep going back to Tommy because of the mixture of visual instruction and notational help. If you are just starting or just started then this DVD and his other DVDs(groove essentials 1 & 2)are I think the only DVDs you need to get started and to realy progress.

Tommy Igoe has put this 4hr dvd together based on his wealth of experience as an educator in the art drumming. He's brilliant! His relaxed approach and humour towards the topic of rudiments is filled with original ideas thus, making this somewhat 'taboo subject' a really enjoyable experience.

This DVD by Tommy is top notch, whilst the rudiments are not as technical as some of the pipe band or American rudimental stuff I have learnt it is still worth every penny. This along with Jojo Mayers DVD is all you'll ever need in my opinion with regards to technique and application to rudiments (for drum kit/set anyway)

I was advised to buy this DVD from my drum tutor, I enjoyed watching and playing along with Tommy and his friends, I would recommend this to anyone starting drumming, the DVD helps with technique and timing. Plus lots more.
