"WOW!! I’ve finally gotten through my first run through Royal’s book and watched the whole DVD. If there is a Dali Lama among drummers, Murray found him in Royal Hartigan. What a peaceful presence at the kit! His materials and system are very helpful to anyone wanting to improve their 4 limb intuition on the drum set. Tapspace has done an awesome job at packaging this method too. It is a steal at $40! Royal seems to be a true nexus to other drum cultures and philosophies. Thank you for making his work available to the rest of us."
