he hits it and then brushes the back of the brush over the drum......have a look.....i cant seem to figure out what he does!
He hits the drum with his brush, then with the other hand, he pushes his finger across the head from the rim to the center, producing what I've heard called a whale sound. You may need to lick your finger to get your finger to sort of stick and slip against the head. It depends on what kind of head you use. It works better on smooth heads. That's it.
A bad day of drumming is better than a good day at work!
