Default Re: Trad Grip Group!

I discovered that a former student of Buddy Rich was living not far from me.
After sharing a few emails with him he let me in on a few "inside" stories about Buddy.
Buddy never believed in Moeller and did not use Moeller in his playing.
If you watch enough video's of him you will see that this is true.
His arms, wrists and fingers were so well developed he didn't need Moeller.
You will rarely (if ever) see Buddy using that whipping motion.
I still think Moeller is effective, but maybe not for everyone.
There is always an exception to the rule.
