Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini released two short video clips of himself warming up prior to one of the band's recent European concerts. Watch him play in 19/16, and see if you can keep up!
Mike's instructional DVD, The Grid, is available now from Hudson Music. Dividing drumming into time signature, subdivision, dynamics, instrument sounds, limbs, style, and phrases, Mike demonstrates dozens of grooves, fills, and patterns from easy to extremely advanced. He systematically shows you how to use the Grid to expand your understanding of music and drumming, and improve your physical abilities.
