Thaard that's incorrect. Moeller is a single-multiple stroke technique. Whether it's a single stroke, double, triple, or even 4 notes in a row per hand. And April is right, if you use Moeller, there should never be any impact on your hands. He probably has tendonitis which is common in drummers. Hence icing to keep the swelling down. Unfortunately even Moeller can't prevent tendonitis. Drummers that practice constantly always seem to develop this. Like Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta and many others.
Ive found that warming up and stretching out prevents/helps this, but enough of that. Saw some videos of Vinnie with the 5 piece band. Was pretty cool.
