I have recently started messing around/practcing... open handed playing.
What I have found, is that, it changes my center of balance on my throne, which I believe has been suspect. I play with double pedals, but not used in a metal/speed metal context. Mainly for fills, so, again, it changes my balance.
The other thing I have noticed, regarding my balance, is also my left foot on the hi-hat. After years and years playing right hand on the hi hat, open handed is kind of giving me a differnt sense of how I go into rolls, and fills. Although, for playing shuffles, right hand on hi hat/left hand on snare, is still my strongest suit... It defnitely adds a whole new dimension, that I would like to incorporate into playing live.
It's kind of added a new sense of "purpose" to my practicing on the kit.
