Hello Fellow Drummers!

I guess I’m suppose to say something………….I like to drum…….:)

Ok, maybe something to start off a discussion.

At this point in my career, I still can’t believe I am learning something new and exciting. I am now trying to master the flow above the head as told by Freddy Gruber. I had seen a video on youtube a couple of years ago on the subject and have since learned so much. I feel like my drumming is improving beyond just hitting the skins. I’m starting to feel the ease of the feeling of floating around the kit. I have also made some adjustments to the way I used to hold the stick and now have a very open loose grip that allows the stick to do the work for me.

As I teach my students, I have found they are improving much faster by applying these techniques while they are learning and practicing. I as have said many times…”Let the stick do the work for you”

Anyways, that’s my thoughts today.
