    It really helps to have the over the shoulder view.

    Would it be possible to have a printed drum chart to go along with the lessons?

    Thank you!

    Easy to order and download - no problems. But I have come to expect that from X8 - every product I have ordered, including drums, has been high quality, with prompt shipping.
