You have seen the cape thread, haven't you? I'm off out to jam night in a bit so I don't have time to search for it right now, but I'm pretty sure somebody will oblige. THAT is the funniest ever, I promise you. I always make sure I have been to the loo before I read it.This is the best thread ever, and the funniest, and I thank you all, for I have found my people. After searching far and wide, at long last, I have found you.
That's difficult - at least, it's difficult when I'm sitting at my laptop. Might be less difficult in practice. I'll give it a try at jam nightTry thinking of the cymbal hit as not being over until you recover the stick.
You've been watching me, haven't you?Thinking of the hit as 'occurring' when you launch is a real formula for lots of problems...including missing the intended target.
You know what else I think is happening, besides my stick dematerialising? My arm suddenly becomes telescopic and articulated in all the wrong places....and repeatedly aim for a small portion of the cymbal(or drum)...its a great skill builder.
