This product is split into two videos, one the history of the american beat and the other more skills focused. Steve is a great player who has a nice presentation style. I really liked his historical and practical discussion on the development of the drum beat. His technique descriptions were helpful though I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking to pick up specific grooves, for that I'd be looking at Tommy Igoe's groove essentials.
