Default Re: Trad Grip Group!

After originally playing matched grip in high school and studying classical percussion, I went into the US Navy band. At the U.S armed forces school of music, I started an interest in trad. grip from watching some of the other students who were there.

I saw Buddy Rich play a couple of times as well as Louie Bellson. I was hooked! There's just something about trad. grip that I like. Esp. for brushes and regimental style playing, it just feels right to me.
