This new DVD from Tommy Igoe focuses on developing and maintaining the physical tools that are essential for every drummer and drumming application: their hands.
At the heart of this life-changing, career-extending system is the three-tier ‘Lifetime Warmup’ originally conceived in the 1950s by Tommy’s father, Sonny Igoe. Featuring basic, intermediate and advanced levels, the Lifetime Warmup is a challenging routine that weaves its way through standard drum rudiments and motions. This nearly four-hour DVD includes Tommy demonstrating the basics of his system:
- Matched and Traditional grip
- Fulcrum Concepts
- Rebound Strokes
- Singles and Doubles
- Check Patterns
- The Five Families Of Rudiments
You also get a group demonstration with five of Tommy’s students, including all three versions of the Lifetime Warmup. Included are a free, colour-coordinated, wall sized Lifetime Warmup poster and a compact fold-out guide courtesy of Evans Drumheads as well as a printable, 60-page eBook with instruction and exercises. Created by one of today’s most successful and progressive drum educators, Great Hands For A Lifetime brings the no-nonsense, inspiring approach of the Groove Essentials series to hand technique and provides a proven alternative for drummers who wish to discover the full potential of their hands and stay healthy drumming over the decades to come.
