GD, good idea, a bunched up towel would help.
Bob, glad I'm not the only one. I start the song sitting on the sticks (pointing sideways!) but once I swap, there's no going back. Be a bummer if I wanted to play brushes again later on; if I had a floor tom to use as a table it would be easier ... but I have a tiny kit :)
