Methods and Mechanics sheds new light on the playing and concepts of one of the most exciting drummers of our time. Built around note-for-note transcriptions by drummer/educator Brad Schlueter, the book also includes detailed commentary from both Todd and Brad about the concepts contained in Todd's playing. Included in this package are 8 songs, 5 breathtaking solos, and several of Todd's custom drum lessons (highlighting his approach to double bass drumming and hybrid rudiments on the kit). All of the songs and solos are included on the CD, as well as drumless play-along mixes of all four of the Taylor Mills songs. This book serves as a complete package to analyze, practice, and understand some of the concepts employed by Todd with artists such as Styx, Brian Wilson, Jerry Goodman, Peter Cetera, Brian Culbertson, Spinal Tap, Michael Bolton, The Falling Wallendas, Eric Marienthal, and many others. The DVD is jam-packed with performances by Todd, instruction on hand and foot technique, quick tips, and much more!

There's a reason why Todd Suchermann has reached super-star status in the drum world over the last few years, he's an amazing player. But unlike a lot of DVDs by amazing players, this one is extremely practical, and isn't just a chops-showoff for 2 hours. He breaks rudiments down and shows many different ways to utilize them on the drum set for beats and fills. A very useful feature is slow-motion, so you can really see every stroke and detail of what he's doing. The content in Methods and Mechanics isn't just geared towards players of one certain genre of music...everything in here can be used by everyone from jazzers to extreme metalists. His little "quick tips" are useful tips/reminders of some things that may not be so obvious to survive a gig, session, even traveling. If you can't tell, I recommend this to drummers beginner to advanced.
