Beyond The Chops: Groove, Musicality & Technique showcases the rising starâ€™s phenomenal drumming that critics, fans and even his peers have described as "beyond category".
The 2-disc, 3-hour program offers amazing performances, enlightening educational segments and revealing interviews as Spears displays his natural talent, deliciously fat groove and incredibly deep skills in a set of spectacular performances with Gospel, R&B, Motown, rock, shuffle and odd-meter tracks. Furthermore, Beyond The Chops provides an inside, in-depth look at Aaronâ€™s exceptional ability to combine a wide range of musical genres and influences into a seamless, powerful, new style of drumming that has placed him among the first generation of elite and essential drummers to emerge in the 21st Century.
Following his blazing performance segments, Aaron hosts a Q&A session in front of a master-class and then sits down with drumming icon Jojo Mayer for a candid interview covering everything from his Gospel roots to his recent work with Usher, the Backstreet Boys and the American IdolÂ® Tour.
Aaron also provides insight into the unique rhythmic vocabulary he has created with many of the grooves and fills transcribed in an accompanying 21-page printable eBook. For additional lesson support, the DVD also includes a special sub-menu that connects each notated exercise in the eBook directly to the video example it supports.
