    Default Instructional DVD help?

    I am getting back into drumming after 16 years of not even looking at them. I am short on money for a while. If you could buy only one instructional DVD, what would it be? Need an answer from as many as possible.

    My favorite: Guitarists Rule - the art of the running knee slide. Oh, you wanted a drumming video! I really like Thomas Lang's stuff, just because he stresses repetition so much. If you want to play like that you have to do it over, and over, and over, and over...

    Why not just get back to practicing and get rid of the cobwebs first, then you can think about instructional DVD's. I did.
    There's a lot to be said for Time Honored tradition and value.

    Another good way is to UTube various artists that have DVDs. Sometimes their lessons are on UTube. Kind of a preview to what they teach.
    If this helps any, here is what I have and really enjoy:

    Groove Essentials - Tommy Igoe
    Master Drum Techniques - Ginger Baker
    Extreme Drum Set Techniques - Vanz Drumming, Randy Van Patten
    Creative Coordination and Advanced Foot Control - Thomas Lang
    and my newest addition,
    Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer - JoJo Mayer

    These are very informative to me, and I am sure you will see a lot of other Amazing DVDs posted by DrumChatters. Just take your time and learn what they teach, and see if it is something that you will benefit from.
