Tommy Igoe - Great Hands for a Lifetime
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 though standard drum rudiments and original exercises while simultaneously keeping players in command of their basic drumming motions. This nearly four-hour DVD includes Tommy demonstrating the basics of his system: Matched and Traditional Grip á Fulcrum Concepts á Rebound Strokes á Singles and Doubles á Check Patterns á The Five Families of Rudiments á and group demonstrations with five of his students, including all three versions of the Lifetime Warmup. Included are a free, color-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.
