Jojo Mayer – Secret Weapons For The Modern Drummer 2: A Guide to Foot Technique

Jojo Mayer Secret Weapons For The Modern Drummer 2 A Guide to Foot Technique. Presenting the most comprehensive guide to foot technique for drummers ever available. With this sequel to his award-winning bestseller on hand technique, Jojo Mayer covers a wide range of techniques, from the most fundamental to the most sophisticated. State-of-the-art visualization and in-depth analysis offer easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for drummers of every skill level. In this highly entertaining and informative program, Jojo explains every aspect of foot technique and pedals—and for the first time reveals the inner workings of his own technique in great detail. The 1st DVD on hand technique you can find in FastStrings.
Contents include bass drum technique fundamentals including heel-down and heel-up playing, playing “in” vs. “out” of the bass drum, the pivot, bass drum hybrid techniques such as double strokes, the constant release technique, exploiting rebound/dislocated spring exercise, the rocking motion, the swiveling technique, the heel-toe technique, the Mayer power slide technique, grouping exercises, the Moeller pumping motion and Jojo’s personal “secret weapon” techniques.
Also included is a complete discussion of the history of the bass drum pedal, anatomy of the pedal, a guide on adjusting your pedals, overview of the perfect balance pedal, discussion of shoes, single vs. double pedal, and a complete analysis of the hi-hat, from its history to setup to playing techniques. Jojo also covers useful topics such as speed, control, managing beater flutter, balance on the drum seat, seat height and posture, and single and double stroke coordination. Additional bonus material, tips and performance clips are included as well.
This drumming DVD is a well-produced and valuable resource for drummers. The focus is on how to play, not what to play. That is, this DVD is focused on foot technique. The first disc is an exceptionally thorough explanation of bass drum foot technique–all the way from heel-down single strokes to hybrid techniques that enable one to perform multiple strokes efficiently. The second disc covers the history and mechanics of the bass drum pedal, and reviews a few odds and ends: like the advantages of less friction between your foot and the pedal. The third disc covers the hihat pedal, as well as an excellent series of exercises for developing your footwork. The exercises on the third disc systematically work through different combinations or foot patterns. Despite the DVD being a technique-focused DVD, Jojo keeps the focus on enabling one to play with musical artistry. He reminds us that technique is a means to a musical ends. Accordingly, he does a good job of avoiding a condescending attitude of, “this is the RIGHT way to play”. Instead he presents tools that one can use to be able to play without hindrance.
