Using the left hand in every day activities, when you would normally use the right hand, is mentioned many times by drummers on message boards to develop a stronger left hand Why is this statement wrong?

I agree, I just wasnt sure if it was mentioned early in the thread.

Art actually talks of unison strokes to keep from both hands getting cold. Definitely building up the left is important for single strokes.

Any exercises anyone using to build up the left???

It's a classic, I think Art used this book also. Morello's teacher was the author Stone.

I don't think these guys like Mangini and this guy Art and Rabb can really teach fast Mike Mangini said in Modern Drummer he was always fast Mike practiced controllling his fast playing These guys must have a natural quickness Buddy claimed he had it I guess it's called equil chops or ambidexturity or some crap

What i'm saying is drummers like Rich and Mike Mangini and Verdi had to be born with a lot of these abilities to play that fast Most drummers can work on speed 10 hours a day for 10 years and not get this kind of speed These drummers have a natural quick reflex and both hands equil like ambidextourity

If the teacher shows the right practicing techniques the student should develop speed and control It's all in how much the student practices and what he or she practices I believe in natural ability but these abilities have to be developed

An natural ambidextrous quality would certainly lead to fast chops, but such things can surely be taught, especially with left-handers. It is the nature of people to want to switch lefty drummers to right handed for a number of practical reasons. Therefore, many southpaw drummers become trained in ambidextrous behaviors. That is why their left hands sound so fast. they actually ARE left handed.

Art Vedi is the greatest! I worked on his video 'Practicing Properly' for Boo McAfee and it was a riot. You have to see the out-takes to fully understand how funny this man really is. Art is the real deal and a true WFD Champ.

Here is the clip I worked on at:
http://www.extremesportdrumming.com/...indowbroad.wmv

It opens in Windows.

Do yourself a favor and try to meet Art if and when you can, he is an original!

Art is also a NICE GUY. He is very helpful. He has helped me a great deal !! He started me on "USING FINGERS" and not wrists.

It's a bold statement, but he's the closest drummer I've been to play like Buddy Rich.

People worship Buddy.

But when they see Art's videos, they say he doesnt groove lol

People are funny that way

I don't say he can't groove, I just want to see him playing some music :) I like Buddy's time playing a hell of a lot - more than I like his fast solos, to be honest - but I've just never heard Art do it so I don't know what to say on that subject!

I have some old Buddy Rich albums and some of those solos were played mainly on the snare drum and got a little mechanical I know what you guys mean Buddy played the music well until some snare drum solos that would last for 2 or 3 minutes

Crossover book?

Is it Joe Cusatis's Rhythmic Patterns. He has a lot of great cross-sticking in that in triplets and 16th notes.

The book is written for a 4-piece

This man Art Verdi is terrific and Buddy Rich was also great
I keep seeing videos of Mike Mangini and Virgil Donati but Gene Krupa had a musical touch to the drums that none of these drummers have
