Chris Layton – Double Trouble Drums

An entertaining and instructive lesson from Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton. Aided by Arlen Roth and Tommy Shannon, Chris gives an in-depth demonstration that includes: One-handed rolls; Double hand sticking; Getting the right feel; 6/8 shuffles; Triplet roll fills; Use of the bass drum in shuffles; Choosing and tuning your kit. Arlen Roth, Tommy Shannon, and Double Trouble’s own Chris Layton team up to give viewers drumming tips that they can really use.
This title is good for practice. It assumes that viewer is not a total beginner. Chris gives some really good insights on practicing, setting up and getting the right feel. The scores with the disc are very useful.
Mr. Layton covers the need to be relaxed when playing. That is a universal piece of advice appropriate for any style of playing. He also covers how to play the Texas shuffle and its many varieties. That instruction is specific to a type of music which can be played the right way and which unfortunately, too often is played incorrectly by drummers who underestimate the importance of the drums in this type of music. Just like Calypso, Bossa Nova, be bop and so many other types of music, there is a way to play the drums in blues music which complements the other musicians and makes the songs sing with the right feel. When they are played well in blues music, the drums can free the rest of the musicians to soar and bring the cows home – they can make an audience understand what the songs are about in a way that communicates straight to the heart. This DVD goes a long way in helping that to happen more often on those nights in those little blues clubs all over the world. Definitely worth the investment if you’re a serious drummer who wants to learn a little bit more about his instrument than he may have previously known there was to know!
