Video of the Week...

Jojo Mayer...Need I say more?

If you haven't checked out his instructional DVD "Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer" , then you're missin' out. His technique is flawless, his grooves relentless, and his knowledge on the history of drum n bass is quite extensive. Probably the best out there for this type of music (although Johnny Rabb is great too).

In this short clip you'll get a brief lesson on the history of the grooves and then a breakdown on the basics of how to do it. It's quite useful and alot of popular bands incorporate these types of beats (i.e. Mute Math, Bloc Party, and even John Scofield).
