I'm just starting to get into playing the drums (on an electronic kit), and am wondering what some useful material would be to help my playing.  Are there any beginner to intermediate-level instructional material (books, cds, dvds, etc.) that you've found useful when learning the drums?

I'd prefer material that doesn't go into the setup of a drum set or anything like that, but am open to any suggestions.  If you can post any video links (trailers, etc.), I'd appreciate it but any titles or authors would be fine. Smile

There are loads of cheap instructional books for beginners on the 'bay and amazon, some drumless tracks are available on various web sites, though you will soon get bored with them, they can get very monotonous and unmusical - most drummers learnt their stuff playing along to records and practicing basics, if you want songs by particular drummers the Lick (stick) Library is excellent but expensive ,  good to try various styles, blues is a great teacher,  but stick with the one you feel most at home with.  good luck!

Thanks for the advice.  I'm open to learning from any style of drumming.  Smile

One (maybe boring) way to study drums would be to download midi tracks of interesting songs, and open them in a sequencer program to look at the beats. You can find free sequencer programs on the net that can open midi files.
