    Jared hi!

    I’m wondering whether your hands/forearms are still relaxed at that speed?? If I play at my speed limit my forearms easily get cramped.

  • Dan Powers says:

    I started playing drums in 1962 in the 7th grade. I played for many years, but then just quit. I started again this year, and it seems impossible. I am 60 years old. Your lessons show me how bad I really am. Here’s my question. How can I get that blazing speed. I want to do a single stroke roll around the set and get it right and really fast. Right now it is a mess. A lot of hits on the rims and I cannot finish it correctly. Your help is appreciated.

    Hi-hats and the righton the snare I can almost do it but my cross over
    is the opposite way, Does that make sence, do I have to teach my brain
    a different way of playing. So I am a Dummie How do Ido that.

  • tony says:

    nice trick ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But why did you not play the first exercice like this? ->”Rll-Rll-Rll…” or “Lrr-Lrr-Lrr…”

    I mean, it’s easier to play this exercice like this but for the other exercices it isn’t possible.

    Ths for your videos ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • Ed Rhea says:

    Perhaps someone has all ready thought of this and I haven’t seen it yet, but what if you combined a Single Paradiddle with a drum roll? I call it a Rolling Single Paradiddle. The sheet music would look like this. Rrrr Llll Rrrr Rrrr Llll Rrrr Llll Llll. R is right hand and L is left hand. The small letters rrr and lll is the roll, or the stick bouncing in each hand. You are letting the sticks bounce two or three times with each notation. The choice is yours on how many bounces. You can do this with most all rudiments. What do you think?
