Default Re: Trad Grip Group!

Hmm...

Recently been trying to learn trad grip and it's coming along.

Two things...

(i) After playing for a while it begins to make the bones in my finger next to my pinky ache. Perhaps I'm holding the sticks too tight??

(ii) I find it practically impossible to strike cymbals with my trad hand (left). Literally I just cannot seem to do it. Is this normal? Something I just need to hone and work on.

Generally I find it pretty comfortable for the often very fast, snare orientated, punk beats I play in the originals band I'm in.
