Using the seven lead sheets from the songs on his classic video, The Musical Drummer, Louie discusses and explains the performance skills needed in playing each piece. With an actual drum chart following the lead sheet, the performer can analyze Louie's interpretation of the song. A series of exercises are then presented which help develop the difficult sections of each song. As a special bonus, an introduction to double bass drumming is provided. Double bass drum beginning studies, rudiments and coordination exercises are all introduced.
