Good Overall Intro
This is a very good overall intro to EZDrummer2. Opened my eyes to a number of features I didn't know existed like the Play Style editor and the Song Creator window. It's already made EZD2 much more useful to me.

Learn about features you may be missing
I was already very comfortable with EZ Drummer 2, which is very intuitive. However, I had a few questions, and decided to watch this series. My questions answered, and I also discovered some very powerful, yet easy to use features that I had been missing. After viewing this series, you will be able to create more original, life-like drum tracks. I highly recommend this series!
