Discover The "Missing Link" To Soloing Around Your Drumset Like A High Velocity Tornado.
(Previously Known Only To Cleveland's Anonymous
'Old School' Jazz Cat Born In 1928.)
It All Happened At The Famous Bop Stop Where Drummers Were Eaten Alive By This Old School Jazz Cat.
Back in the day, the mecca of drummers from all over would come in droves to this little smokey jazz club in Cleveland called the BOP STOP. If you thought you had chops and could play... this was your stomping ground.
As a teenager, I was one of these drummers that would try to go there and impress everyone with my flashy chops. Of course I turned red in the face when I was eaten alive by these “old school” jazz cats that were well into their late 60’s and 70’s. Their playing, especially Harry Damas’s was as hot as firecrackers and I remember drooling to my friends, “It’s amazing to watch these seniors blaze’ around the kit like that… especially my drum teacher Harry.”
Yes, I was fortunate enough to be a student of the late great Harry Damas. Started when I was 6 with the man. An old school jazz cat that was hard as nails on the fundamentals. A decade goes by and we’re still together, but his hands start painfully developing degenerative arthritis. It was so bad that he could no longer play piano with his fingers… he had to use ALL KNUCKLES (and it still sounded amazing). And when it came to holding drumsticks, his hands were so clenched up like a vice that he could no longer use his fingers like he used to… BUT amazingly so, he could still tornado around the kit like a mad man.
So as I got older, I got more focused, and wanted to make my mark on the World. Harry was already a legend in the area for producing top notch drummers, it was time for me to start paying more attention to his lessons and figure out why he was so damn fast around the kit.
Here’s what I found out.
Joe pictured here in Ohio with his long time instructor and the master of soloing around your kit like a tornado... Harry Damas
Harry Damas’ secret relied on your ARMS natural ergonomic motion to act like a bull whip. This was the “missing link” that allows you to practice less and guarantees you move around your kit with the velocity of a tornado. This is NOT the Moeller Technique or French Grip
(these methods rely on too much finger and wrist strength and is very one dimensional.)
Old School Jazz Cats Like Harry Damas And Even Buddy Rich Could Do More MAGIC On Just A
Snare And Two Toms Than Drummers Today With Their 20 Piece Drumkits.
Think about it this way. Practicing Snare drum rudiments is a very 1-dimensional type of playing. A Drum set is three dimensional with all it’s multi angled cymbals and toms. Flowing around your drumset, requires a whole different set of muscles and fundamentals. And that’s the point. Fundamentals to flying around your kit that are just NOT taught anymore.
So yes there is a ton of information and incredible lessons on rudiments and snare drum speed out their, but very little on the sweet science of the ERGONOMICS to blaze around your kit like a tornado. At least not like Harry did. Degenerative arthritis and all.
But obviously you’re asking…
"Why Haven't I Heard Of This SECRET Before."
For one simple reason. Jazz is dying AND… Rock is king. And with each passing year… the little known secrets of these “old school” jazz cats are being buried (if you know what I’m saying) and replaced by young “rock” instructors who think that just practicing rudiments every day FOR HOURS ON END will give you speed around the kit.
You Have To Admit That You Are At Least A Little Intrigued By The Magic Of How These Jazz Cats Could Physically Play More Notes With Less Strokes
Am I right?
I am very blessed to have personally studied with Harry Damas for almost three decades, and to share with you what he revealed to me about blazin’ around the kit like a tornado. It will give you the chops to scare seasoned drummers away (just like at the Bop Stop). So you gotta check out this exciting system that I put together that reveals everything I privately learned from the master himself.
Here’s the deal: You don’t need to be good already, you don’t have to play traditional (both match grip and tradition grip work) and you don’t need to spend hours, days or months conditioning and reconditioning your hands. You can have two left thumbs and be totally uncoordinated… and STILL learn the secret to tornado chops™ that will earn you INSTANT RESPECT anywhere you go. Guaranteed.
FINALLY, The Kind Of Wicked Speed and Ear Pleasing Melodies Around Your Drumset That Earn You Instant Respect!
Make no mistake – this is totally unique stuff that needs to be released to drummers of our time (in a very… and I mean very limited quantity of course). It’s all instantly available in my Tornado Chops Online Course.

What Happy Customers Are Saying!
I recently bought your Tornado Chops package because I was curious to see if it could give me the chops of some of my favorite drummers – Mike Portnoy and Danny Carey. I got to say… I was able to double my speed and fluidity around my drum set. My band mates asked me how I was able to get faster. I told them and they said it sounds like Joe Ballistic knows how to turn your into an animal. What a compliment. I look forward to getting even faster, like those old school jazz cats and dusting the competition.”
I’m a Berklee Graduate, and professional drummer for over 28 years. Needless to say, I was skeptical when I read Joe's ads in Modern Drummer and Drum magazine. And when I listened to his free CD and read through the testimonials from well-known drummers, I did what most people do… NOTHING.
But I kept listening and eventually I thought, “what the heck,” I’ll try it out and see what happens. I figured if Joe was full of it, at the very least I could let my students now that it was bull and prevent any of them from being taken for a ride.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered Joe’s methods work. I made the changes to my kit and already I saw an improvement in the ease and efficiency of my playing. I was able to use the Tornado Chops techniques immediately. I am teaching my students this method because it has them blaze around the kit."
The day I got your Tornado Chops Package, I watched the video and one hour later I was already doing some of the things in it. It is an amazing concept that is easy to learn. I would like to thank you for putting all these amazing concepts out there for people like me to learn. I can’t find anything like your videos. I am blown away by the Tornado Chops and can’t wait to see what you have coming out next.”
Right from the start I was blown away by the concepts you taught in the Tornado Chops package. I had to jump on my set right away to try them out. Now a month later, I am able to tornado all over every piece of my set. It’s no wonder why those Jazz guys were still amazing at 80 years old. You definitely changed the way I play. The results are AWESOME!"
Your Tornado Chops package is awesome. I figured out more stuff watching this video than any other video I have watched or book I’ve read. Being a huge Neil Pert and John Bonham fan, I discovered how they do some of the stuff that they manage to pull off. Your video really cleared up a lot of things I’ve been wondering about. Thanks and keep the stuff coming."
In the past, any material that I ordered from you turned out to be pure gold - so you can guess that I did not hesitate to order your Tornado Chops system. I studied the material and I was quit frankly amazed that something so simple could become so potent a tool in a drummer's bag of tricks. The concepts were easy to grasp and beautifully simplistic. Applying them takes a bit more work, but nothing worth having comes easy. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with me, I feel nothing but inspired."
To be honest, I can tell that this is some pretty crazy stuff. It helped me out almost instantaneously. I was a big fan of how you spelled everything out in its simplicity on the video. You allowed the material to be learned and understood at a pace that could be followed by anyone much like the other material I bought from you, Ballistic Bass Drumming and the One Handed Roll.”
If it were up to me I’d only show this information to your 'Ballistic Drummers' NOT the general public. I pride myself on being a good drummer, I’ve won drummer of the year and I love finding new techniques to have up my sleeves such as the Tornado Chops package.
“I haven’t told anyone about the lessons I purchased from you, including the obvious “Ballistic Bass Drumming, One Hand Roll, Isotonik System and now the Tornado Chops for the reason that I don’t play to be shown up by every other drummer with $300 for a kit and a pair of sticks. Keep doing what you’re doing and know that crazies like me really appreciate it."
Travis James Vadnais
Outstanding. For starters the 'imploding principle' answered a lot of questions. It is much simpler and it is easy to learn, much better than those crazy sticking pattern books that do nothing but confuse you.
The elbow method RULES! It helps build momentum and speed. Also liked what you did with the thumb and wrists. I am hooked on this stuff. My favorite drummers are Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, and John Bonham. Now I know how they did it. It is cool to see how these jazz cats discovered these techniques. Keep on Rockin."
Wow! Your tornado chops material is awesome. And that's just the start. It has improved my speed and confidence. The way you break things down makes learning easy. I am 59 years young and I feel like I am playing like I am 21 again. What a find you have been. Keep it up."
You're video's are by far the best teaching video's I've seen. You teach things so well without making me feel dumb. Thank you so much for all that you do for the drumming world."
You did a great job explaining the material and demonstrating exactly what you were doing. When I went downstairs and sat behind my kit and tried it, it enlightened me a little bit for some
reasons. I realized that I'd seen drummers doing exactly what you are doing in solos and I always asked myself 'How could they possibly be doing all that?' but what you've shown me has made me
believe that with some practice, I could be doing what I've seen Buddy Rick and Dennis Chambers doing."
The tornado chops program has given me noticeable results in flying all the way around my kit. The concept is so simple and easy to grasp. If it were up to me, I'd tell you to sell this idea to a
select, and I mean a very select few people. I feel like now I can reach speeds with complete control that were not possible before. I can't wait to wow the local drummers."
Joe's material on developing your hands and soloing will blow you away with it's simplicity and power. You will smoke the competition. Stop wasting your time trying to develop boring rolls around your toms. This teaches you the secret techniques to flying around the toms with ease and not breaking a sweat.
This will easily put you in a new and unique level above anyone else. Seriously, take the chance to be different, to be refreshed and excited again about playing drum and don't forget MUSIC!!!"
