Performance and Technique DVD
By Bobby Jarzombek
Bobby Jarzombek, best know for his work with British metal vocalist Rob Halford, has put together his first DVD titled Performance & Technique. Let's check it out.
Peppered Cancer: This song, co-written by Bobby, is an up-tempo tune featuring odd time signature changes and lots of Bobby's trademark double bass chops.
Drum Solo #1: Bobby demonstrates his ample 'show' skills, which include cross sticking and visual stick tricks.
My Approach to Drumming: Bobby discusses his basic approach to drumming (open-handed technique) and double bass drum patterns. He also includes advice on learning to read and write music and ear protection.
So It Ain't: This song, also co-written by Bobby, is in a Latin vein.
Live in Japan: This live performance shows Bobby's drum solo skills up close and personal.
Visuals: This segment consists of Bobby demonstrating and teaching his favorite stick tricks, which include stick twirling, tosses, and backsticking.
Drum Solo #2: Bobby pulls out all the stops as he gives us a sampling of his visual solo skills.
Double Drop: This segment includes 11 exercises that consist of some of Bobby's favorite double bass patterns and sticking interactions.
School: This third tune, again co-written by Bobby, features a cool superimposed triplet feel.
