LOUIE WEAVER - BACK TO THE BASICS Part One In The Drummer's Fellowship Video Series

Most people place so much emphasis on technique, that they forget about the actual drum itself, and how it relates to one's playing. In this first video of the Drummer's Fellowship Series by PETRA's Louie Weaver, you'll go with Louie to the DW drum factory and learn how a drum's size, construction and materials can greatly effect the way it reacts to your playing and to the rest of the kit, both physically and sonically. Having this knowledge will help you to be more comfortable with the overall selection and tuning of your drums. Next you'll go cymbal shopping with Louie to see what he looks for and how he pieces together a completely matched set. Then, it's on the road with PETRA, 1990 Grammy Award winner and Christian music's top-selling band. Spend the day with Louie and the guys, first at the sound check, and then later at the concert where Louie ends the video with a spectacular drum solo.
