A Drum Lesson With Jason McGerr From Death Cab For Cutie

Years ago, Jason McGerr was just a bad ass drum teacher. Now he drums in one of the most respected and compositionally amazing bands around. While his time is too in demand to be giving out drum lessons these days, here we have a YouTube where you can see him build one of his awesome, and complicated drumbeats. Notice the way he gets one limb right at a time to perfect this complex beat. This is an essential skill you should be using if you aren’t already.
