Re: Derek Roddy here!
Haha, well yeah definitely. Right now I've figured that this is my ideal position, so now it's a matter of doing the drills. Your endurance exercises (those ten minute circuits of single strokes) are INCREDIBLY tiring, but I love 'em.
I'm not sure I'd call what happened today "progress" so much as finally putting myself in an ideal position to start the REAL practice. It's gonna be a long journey.
I just want to get to a point where my feet are as fast as my hands, y'know? I can hit single stroke rolls at 190-200bpm for short periods of time, and 180bpm for a solid minute or two, but on my legs? No way. 140bpm for any period of time now.
You're an inspiration Derek. Make another DVD!
