Hudson Music Benny Greb The Language Of Drumming - 2 DVDs, German Edition. This DVD set provides a fascinating look into Benny Greb's unique approach to making music on the drums - a complete and practical approach based on a concept familiar to everyone: learning a language. Topics: grooving, interdependence, improvisation, rudimental vocabulary, time awareness and a Western form of the Indian phrasing system. For beginners and advanced drummers; performances with Pete Lockett and the Benny Greb Brass Band; the highlight is a humorous and inventive drum solo. Running time 192 minutes. Audio languages: English and German (booklet in German). Disc 1: Greb introduces his 24-character system and shows how to use basic binary and ternary rhythms to develop timing, technique, dynamic control and speed… even the traditional drum rudiments. Covering hands and feet, with and without a practice pad, he quickly progresses from simple exercises to more intricate work on the full kit. Disc 2 - additional information: practical discussions about the importance of listening, building fills and solos using standard improvisational forms, developing better time and expanding rhythmic 'comfort zones' through creative use of a metronome to find new and alternative sounds on the drum kit.
