Excellent course, I highly recommend it. Its packed with information at a proper pace, moreover Mr. Ellis has a good attitude. While I don't intend to use all ideas as presented (my Ableton Push is going to handle hi-hats in repeat mode) there is much to take away from this course.
This is what i really love: good explanations and demonstrations. Funny and super cool presenter. This course makes really fun to watch and also to learn more and get practicing. :) Thumbs up!!!!! Excellent.
Not my cup of tea, but Jeremy Ellis made sipping worth while. Old concepts applied to todays technology, I'm one to always keep an open mind.
great course for learning patterns and all around drumming. breaks down lots of ways to work on your drumming.
Really good tutorial,covering the art of finger drumming and everything else,Jeremy knows is stuff for sure Upon watching this great tutorial,I was hooked and bought a Maschine Mikro,as a great way to get into beat making,ha,ha Lots of content,a course I will be watching again very soon,ha,ha
Excellent course, couldn't be any more straightforward. Totally demystifies the art of Finger drumming & leaves you with the tools to develop your own style. Ace
Jeremy demos many ways to approach Maschine hands-on. He adapts standard drumming rudiments for the 16 pads and shows how you can re-jig those loops for the live situation. Awesome!
After watching the Maschine Virtuosity and the other Maschine courses, I'm definitely switching from my monthly plan to the yearly. There's so much here, and for such a lil price, I'm still shocked.
Really great tutorial!I have been practicing finger drumming for years, but this tutorial gives you a METHOD. Practice becomes effective! I surely reccommend it!
AWESOME!! This is seriously such a great tutorial. Thank you MPV and Jeremy!
This is one of the great video's in my collection. I have a strong background in Afrikan Drumming so I was not sure what he would cover. I like his attitude as a person who serves as a guide to find your own sound. Thanks Jeremy!
Yesss.. tis all I can say. Good job MacPro for picking up a great like Jeremy Ellis!
Great stuff. Inspiring and practical. I think it's certainly one of the best tutorials money can buy. More tutorial from Jeremy, please? Pretty please?
Jeremy is a Living Legend :) Very easy to follow videos and step by step instructions.. I started off as a Beginner, now I'm Intermediate. and I'm only a Third of the way through The Videos! I would Definitely recommend this Tutorial to Everyone, from Beginner to Advanced Thank-you ;)
One of MPV's Greatests Hits for sure!!
I am not a musician but watching Jeremy in this tutorial makes me want to be. Looks like a lot of fun and I've been recommending this to all my musician friends.
I actually went out an bought a Maschine MK2 after having watched the preview for this. I'm not even all the way through and I have to say this is best training I've ever seen. Jeremy does a great job showing and explaining exactly what he's doing. My only request would be practice sheets template to remind me which ways to practice so I can get them into a daily schedule. Also a practice project file that has all the metronomes Jeremy shows early in the tutorial would be nice for download. The quality of the videos is also very high. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.
Unbelievably good course! Jeremy Ellis, is a finger drumming God and an excellent teacher... so many useful lessons I'm going to be watching again and again.
Outstanding! Thank you very much Jeremy!
great jobs easy to learn
I've seen the few youtube finger drumming lessons that Jeremy has come out with and wished there was more... When I saw the e-mail come through from mac pro video that he had released a class I dropped everything I was doing to go through it. Having gone through it, (to me) it's worth a years worth of subscription for the exercises in this one lesson.
This is a gem! Jeremy generously shares his hard earned knowledge and skill in a well architected and presented tutorial. If you want to know what you must do to improve your finger drumming (or learn from scratch, for that matter), you will find exercises, hints, opinions and encouragement in this tutorial. Good job!
This is amazing tutorial that I would like anybody interesting in learn how to get a great skill in Maschine purchase it. I got it yesterday and already I start to play different, I am a piano player and I feel so comfortable with the proffessional way that Jeremy is teaching it.Thank you for this great tutorial. Muchas gracias Jeremy and the team.
At last some instruction on applying drum concepts to maschine! As a non drummer I struggled in this area and used maschine more as a sequencer. This puts the instrument back in Native Instruments. Awesome thanks Jeremy.
I used my MPC with this course and it is very well applicable on that piece as well. Some of the techniques has different names, but the performances are directly translating to any hardware with pads! Georgeous!
Jeremy Ellis is the best, I started out watching his youtube videos a few months ago and was amazed. Now that he has a macProVideo tutorial explaining even more is a huge plus for anyone wanting to learn finger drumming. Thanks
Wow! I wish I had this tutorial when I was just started out. Instead I decided to take drum lessons. Rest assured this tutorial breaks down percussion fundamentals like how they would teach you if you're playing the real drums. The layout and production is excellent. I watched it straight with no breaks and I didn't fall asleep! Great job Jeremy and Macprovideo!!
