Re: Phil Maturano here!
Sorry to go on about this Phil, I've kinda been obsessing over the right stool height/posture that allows me optimum foot action. Hence the weird questions.
I often find the same problems. I Sit low on the kit to really accent dynamically for funk for example, but this position doesn't allow me to comfortably do other things ( e.g. hat ostinatos - for that I need to sit higher )
So its one over the other. I end up with some back pain when I finish playing playing, because I've constantly been shifting in my seat, hunkering down for some stuff and sitting up high of other stuff..
My posture and arm positions are good, and I'm not a hard hitter. Anything thing I can look into, Dr. Phil? ; )
Thanks a ton.
