Hosted and produced by drummer Gil Sharone (Stolen Babies/The Dillinger Escape Plan), Wicked Beats is the first product to offer a complete study of the evolution and development of Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae. It is the first and only curriculum to cover African Nyabingi, Mento and Burru, which helped shape the foundation of Jamaican drumming.
Wicked Beats' comprehensive program teaches the proper sound and feel for dozens of grooves and variations. Sharone expertly guides the viewer through each of the three primary Jamaican styles plus many sub-styles, with tips on how to master each.
