Overview

Learn jazz, R&B, and hip-hop drumming from one of the world's top R&B drummers.

John Blackwell, one of today's top R&B drummers, showcases the playing that has earned him the drum chair with such high-profile artists as Justin Timberlake and Prince as well as international acclaim in his own right.

In the first section of the instructional DVD, Blackwell performs with an all-star band and then explains and demonstrates the drum parts. Not only does he discuss the way the song and groove evolved along with the specific drum techniques that are involved in the performance, he demonstrates the patterns at normal and slow speeds to provide students with a deeper, fuller understanding of the parts and their musical context.

The second part of the tutorial covers topics such as playing musically, grooving and embellishing the groove without overplaying, drum fills and solos, showmanship and independence as well as Blackwell's jazz, R&B, and hip-hop roots.

A bonus lesson on bass drum pedal technique featuring a rare appearance by Blackwell's friend and mentor, Marcus Williams is also included. 2 hours, 26 minutes.
