Comments about Hal Leonard Mike Portnoy - Progressive Drum Concepts Video:
When I recieved this video as a gift from my drum teacher, I had been playing for about two and a half years. Ever since I started playing I wanted to learn how to play like Slipknot, Nothingface and American Headcharge and I think it was when i got this video that I really started learning hot to play what I wanted to. Honestly, all of the cool double bass tricks and concepts I know, I learned from this video and Mike is just so relaxed about everything he is teaching that it makes you feel more relaxed and comfortable watching it.
