Default Re: Trad Grip Group!

I am completely self taught. I only used matched but after seeing Buddy Rich play, I remember going to bed that night and taping my pinky and ring fingers down. I got really good at it in 4 weeks. Often wonder where that kind of determination to learn something has gone. Guess you don't care quite as much when you get older.

Trad feels so much better and natural when you are playing loose music like jazz, swing, or in my case alt country. Rock, country, R&B, and gospel feels better matched, just my opinion.
