Re: Is this a problem with my playing technique?

Re: What grip to pick

Indeed. The fulcrum should be between the thumb and the hand, not the index finger and the index finger, or the index finger and whatever you're supposed to be doing holding it like that.

Re: tension and wrist pain

If the music were a car, it's more like riding in...

Re: Useful drum rudiments

9 years ago, I started practicing rudiments. Today, I am still improving on them, though I rarely have time to practice. There is no such thing as not enough time when you've got a whole life...

Re: bombing on stage?
