Playing with Your Drums provides an enlightening and fun discussion of common issues facing every drummer. The one-hour-and-20-minute program discusses the ins and outs of setting up and getting comfortable on your drumset. Joined by a panel of 3 other professional drummers, Derek Roddy delves into detail on important (yet often overlooked) topics such as seat height, position/angle of the drums, using your available space on stage, setting up your pedals, creating an ergonomic setup, proper positioning of your hardware, placement of the hi-hat, how to position your toms, and even the importance and proper use of a drum carpet. Everything youve always wanted to know about creating your ideal setup is included on this DVD!
Having come to the U.S. from his native Nigeria to study medicine, percussionist Babatunde Olatunji eventually became one of the first African music stars in the States. He also soon counted jazz heavyweights like John Coltrane ("Tunji") and Dizzy Gillespie among his admirers (Gillespie had, a decade earlier, also courted many Cuban music stars via his trailblazing Latin jazz recordings). And, in spite of it being viewed by some as a symbol of African chic, Drums of Passion is still a substantial record thanks to Olatunji's complex and raw drumming.
