Steve Gadd - Hudson Music Master Series DVD

This first Master Series DVD features Steve Gadd at the height of his career and was recorded at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City in 2006 during the recordings of “Mission From Gadd ." Over one hour and 35 minutes of a modern drum Master Class dealt with the typical American method based on the question-and-answer (blow and answer with multiple questions from the public). 

The DVD is also accompanied by a bonus track (20 minutes from the 2003 American Drummers Achievement Award) and the discussion of topics such as the application of rudiments to the drumset, playing on a click-track, odd-times, shuffles and solos.
