Trying something different for this download. Donation - pay what you think is fair.
I work hard to generate content to continue my mission of educating drummers of all ages and skill levels I would love to give it all away for free, but it does cost a bit of money to produce, edit and make available. Donate what you think each item you download is worth. The quality and frequency of the content will only get better if I can bring in a little bit of cash to cover all my costs.
Thanks, Kent AberleDownload Video The file is 1.4GB - it may take a few minutes to download.
