Let’s Do Lunch!
Aside from watching a student, who is just at the point of really understanding my Tension Free Concepts, as it all comes together and the separate techniques become one synergistic movement, the most fun I have is hanging with drumheads and talking drums. That’s why I enjoy doing drum clinics and festivals so much. There’s nothing better than meeting new drumheads, hearing them play, learning about their gear setups, etc.

Well on December 4th, to celebrate the release of my latest DVD Tiger Bill’s Concepts of Tension Free Drumming Volume 2: Advanced Hand Technique, I’m inviting you to have lunch with me so we can get the chance to know one another better while we share ideas about drums and drumming. After lunch I have some really cool drum stuff to give away, courtesy of some of my terrific sponsors, and after that Ill be teaching a hands-on Master class on Tension Free Drumming. So I’m looking to having a real blast.

The Masterclass/Drum clinic starts at 2 PM and is free but, if you’d like to join me for lunch at Noon and get in on the drum giveaways, you’ll need you to
Follow this link and register. The $10 fee covers your share of the food and drinks. Your ticket also puts you in the running for the cool door prizes.

Time/Date: Saturday, December 4th from Noon until 4 PM if you want to join us for lunch and the free giveaways. If you just want the Free Drum Clinic then you can join us from 2 PM to 4 PM.

So if you’re going to be around on December 4th I hope you’ll join me for 4 hours of drum fun.

Location: The Fusion Cafe, which is located in the Butler Church of the Nazarene in Butler, New Jersey. Take Route 23 North into Butler and take the Kinnelon/Kiel Road exit. Turn right and take two quick lefts into the church parking lot. If you have a GPS, key in 10 Jerico Road, Butler, NJ.

And if you’re wondering what’s on my latest DVD, here’s just some of the cool stuff I’ve included – and I’m not just demonstrating things in high speed to show off – everything is broken down and explained in extreme detail so you can actually learn how to do it without the help of a live instructor:
1. Advanced Finger Techniques
2. Finger Glide
3. Stick Walking
4. Secret to Playing Tension Free
5. Straight Arm Technique
6. Modified Moeller Arm Whip
7. Accenting Methods
8. Advanced Gladstone Stroke
9. Roll Techniques
10. Grace Note Rudiments
11. One-Handed Rolls
12. Cymbal Time
13. Wrist / Finger / Arm Combinations
14. And much, much more!

I hope to see you at the DVD Release Party and… Oh, I almost forgot! There’s a special limited-time discount available right now that will save you some big bucks.
