I posted this video for students at the Seattle Drum School about a month ago. It is a simple exercise, but also a pain in the ass. I thought of the video when teaching a student yesterday afternoon (hey Luke!), and thought that since I was more alert when filming, it would be beneficial. Pay close attention to the details: fingertips, roundness to the hand, avoiding the bottom of the neck, thumb behind neck, slow tempo. I confess that I am being a bit self indulgent, but I hope you will forgive me.
