Comments about Hudson Music The Art of Playing With Brushes 2 DVDs with Play-Along CD and Booklet:
The only reason I gave these a rating of 2 is because it was nice to watch the old pros show off their techniques. I really didn't find it very instructional as far as learning how to play with brushes. This package was suppose to have 8 pdf files, however, there were only 3 files and none of it had anything to do with instructions on how to play with the brushes. I was very disappointed with this and I don't recommend it if your purpose for buying it is to learn and not just watch the pros play the different grooves.
