As far as how I grip the sticks its a bit hard to explain. I play matched most of the time, but I use a couple of techniques. I haven't actually worked on technique in a while. I usually practice my movements in a way that is comfortable for me, and focus on staying relaxed. My movements are not based on any particular techique, but through focusing on the sound that I am after I have pieced a few things together. Over the years it has developed on its own...
Thanks for replying Cliff! I also try to stay relaxed and I love what you said about getting
the sound you want. Thank you!
