Re: Trad Grip Group!
(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.
if you don't mind a bit of flair, you can spin the stick to a better position.
keep the stick between your ring finger and your social finger
open your hand so that the stick can move past your thumb.
turn your hand over.
you should end up with the stick sticking from between your fingers, like Wolverine. try it out. its a very fun way to switch from snare to a nearby crash with just a flick.
