He just hits the tom with his right hand and then bends the tone up by pressing the middle/index finger of his left hand in the head and slides the finger to the centre of the tom. Quite easy - check my first transcription, there is a "bend up" somwhere in there (page two or three I guess).

Everybody else: thanks for the thanks, hehe.

I have an anouncement: "Performance 1" of JoJos DVD soon to be completed and posted here. I'm about half way through but it's difficult as hell, so have some patience. I have also figured out some JoJos stick-twirling stuff at the end of the 1998 modern drummer festival, but I think a transcription doesn't help. Maybe I'll put up a video lesson if people are interested in that (it'll take at least a month though because I don't have my drumset in my practise room until then).
Just let me know if you are interested.

Cheers and shed some wood on this.
