Todd Sucherman - Methods & Mechanics II
PAL/Region 0. 2011 instructional video for the drummer, best known for his work with Styx since 1996. Conceived in very much the same manner as Sucherman's original Methods & Mechanics video, M&M II is a smorgasbord of inspiring live and studio performances, useful and practical quick tips, and detailed drum-part analysis of various Styx, Jerry Goodman, and Taylor Mills tracks. And once again Todd offers exceptional conceptual and technical lessons, like melodic song-form practice suggestions, ghost-note groove ideas, and odd-meter paradiddle warm ups. Sucherman keeps the tone light yet informative, and peppered throughout the more drum-heavy content is a handful of great professional suggestions that could benefit anyone looking to gain (and maintain) a career as a working drummer.
