Just for clarification I was being serious here. It looks like he has pretty decent hand technique...

Dont know about any of what you are thinking (hand doesnt look that good) but quest love afro picking that bean and kazzoing (kazoo-ing sp?) is pretty funny. I think I could watch that girl sing that a thousand times and not be bored either. Dont know what it is.

Jimmy Fallon plays the drummer in the SNL Cowbell sketch, so yeah he probably does play.

He's holding the mallet with a fulcrum and using his fingers to play the strokes (free strokes)...

I noticed that as well when I saw this on broadcast tv...

He was using real finger technique...and had fairly consistant stroke...

Could be natural for him...
