View Full Version : Crossover Speed

In getting crossover speed, does anyone work on aerobic arm exercises or something? Or do you just practice the patterns on the kit and work up speed.
This is insane crossover stuff. I would probably break my arm doing this, hehe

Who is that guy? Cross overs I can do fast but im trying to learn more difficult co-ordanations than just singles around the kit.

I think it's simply an awkward motion that you have to work on slowly.

I knew Buddy Rich wasn't dead! I think he's living with Elvis in a single wide trailer in Tennessee somewhere...
Seriously, who is that old guy. He's really really good (although his drums could be tuned up a bit..starting with perhaps adding bottom heads?)

That's not Robert Schuch is it? Heck of a left hand there...

im gonna guess art verdi?

Wow, pretty fast chops. The crossovers are amazing though. Very fast left hand, AND he's playing traditional, which makes it a lot more difficult, IMO.

Yes, it is Art Verdi.

They say Art Verdi is one of the few drummers that have a left hand like Buddy Rich had

I would like to know why the scenes keep changing so fast
Art plays some grooving independence stuff some where in there

I would say light rep weight lifting would be best for great arm speed
No more than 2 - 5 pounds

I believe weights can cause musle stiffness or muscle boundness
This can only slow you down and stiffen your hands
Squeesing rubber balls would be better

It's the heavy weights that could cause stifness
2 to 5 pound weights with many reps would be fine
