How To Develop Technique (VHS001) $39.95 US Dollars
In this video, Dave explains and demonstrates his natural approach to the drums. All of the topics discussed
are explained and demonstrated on the drum pad and then on the drum set. Lastly, they are brought to life
with exciting live recordings of the Dave Weckl Band and a special acoustic group put together for this
video. The video will allow you to see and hear Dave explain and demonstrate his new concepts of stick
grip, which leads to the contrast of his older tight "into the kit" approach as compared to his new lowing,
powerful "out of the kit" approach. He covers wrist technique, finger technique, and the rebound approach
for both hands and feet. Stick choice and proper set up for flowing stress free playing are also covered.
This video includes a cameo appearance by Freddie Gruber who explains some of the basics of technique,
which are the cornerstones of Dave's playing.

practice and Swiss triplet playing. The section on time and motion studies will open your eyes and ears to a
new way of building time into all of your playing. After covering ear protection, Dave describes and

drummer, and Advancement of the Art practice, which help you stretch the limits of the instrument.
