Re: Splashes

I've got a few different brands of splashes in various sizes 6" to 12", other than a tonal difference between each they all sound pretty much the same. Crappy.

Re: jazz left hand

Anything it wants to. ;)

You could follow accents, but how many accents are there in a phrase or song? Create you're own accents or just keep time. In any case it's all in the feel of the piece....

Re: Simple trick to NEVER DROP A STICK AGAIN!
