In the "full stroke" up position, the knuckles are facing up and thumbs are facing each other. When striking the drum, he describes a twist of the forearm so that when the stick hits the head the thumbs are facing upwards and knuckles are facing out to the side.
Obviously the faster you play, the more subtle the twist needs to be. The thing is, one of my private teachers told me that knuckles should be facing up at all times and the motion of the wrist is a simple pivot rather than a twist.
How many of you use this forearm twist technique when striking the drum? I DO NOT want to start any debates about right and wrong here, I just want to get a feel for how common this technique is For those who have used the book, what do you think of it in terms of teaching rudiments? How complete is it compared to other rudiment books and methods? If you are playing upto abou 8" of the drum then maybe i wouldnt turn. One of my good freinds uses a twist in his doubles and his doubles are blinding.
He is a very muscular player and doesnt use a lot of bounce, but jesus he can play a double stoke roll. I would'nt worry to much about the status qo, im not really sure how most people, if your not hurting yourself and it works its fine in my opinion.
Okay thanks. To me it seems the wrist motion the twist of the wrist using the forearm as Ted demonstrated in his video is very exaggerated.
I don't see many other players using this method exactly as Ted describes, and I feel it is very awkward. However, as you speed up while playing, these motions would become more subtle I assume. Another thing I notice is that the Buddy Rich book goes through "ruffs" as alternating single stroke rudiments, but other methods don't always include "ruffs". I thought this was a "drag", not a "ruff"? I have been playing drums for 18 years but never went through all the rudiments ouch.
I wish I had taken more lessons so that I would have them under my belt already. Unfortunately I have to play catch up now. Monica McCoy Senior Member. This was my first drum book. I've been playing for 2. The binding is broke and all the pages are falling out LOL. Took almost a year to go thru snapping each rudiment. Then 9 months to go thru again bouncing the exercises. I basically worked on 1 or 2 lessons each week. Like 10 minutes a day.
At class I had to play right and left lead with intention and in time. Also had to tap my foot on 1 and 3 or each beat if I wanted. Failure to demonstrate it like this meant it was going to be reassigned for the next week.
My teach is merciless. Lately it's been advanced rhythm stuff. We did the reading sections early on. The others I was told to buy. Good luck. And have a watch of the DVD's. Was your teacher strict on twisting the wrist when snapping out the rudiments for stage 1? By twist I mean knuckles up in full stroke position, and thumbs up by the time the stick hits the head, just like Ted Mackenzie demonstrates on the DVD?
No twisting. Just snap straight down. Fox Gold Member. Monica McCoy said:. You must log in or register to reply here.
