Synopsis by Mark Deming
While playing the drums may look easy, there's a lot more to it than picking up a pair of sticks and bashing away. Absolute Beginners: Drums is an instructional video designed to give aspiring percussionists the basic knowledge to start off properly with the instrument. The video includes segments on setting up the drum kit, the proper way to hold the sticks, tuning your drums, matching the feet with the hands, reading drum music, basic rhythmic patterns, playing with a group, the use of cymbals, and much more.
