This is exactly what I was looking for! There are a lot of tips on how to create an entire drum track for rock, but many of these tips can also be applied to other genres as well. I'd definitely love to see more "Programming Drums" for other genres in the future.

Very good, especially for showing you how to program drums--but not so much what drums to program
I've watched a number of these types of videos so far and while I won't say this series is my favorite, it's still very good, especially for showing viewers how to program drums (the "knobology") and to replicate what a real (but not necessarily great) drummer would--and would not--play (e.g. cymbals in the middle of a drum roll). At the same time, I don't remember anything particularly creative or showing how bending the rules of realism can create a drum track that sounds stunning (perhaps cymbals in the middle of a drum roll...) I'd say the audience who would benefit the most would be a good drummer who wants to learn how to program what he or she plays. If you know little about drumming, your results will probably end up sounding pretty basic but to be fair, the purpose of the series is not to teach drumming; it's to show you how to program drums and it does it very well.
