hello guys, i m jay

since many days i m working on fingure control n i noticed that "when u r playing @ 180+ tempo u start using fingures". n i agreed

now after 2 days i came accross different hand techniques (gladstone\push pull) now it does the same thing as fingures do that it helps in playing at speedy tempos.

my question is why we need to learn this techniques n what are its benifits. pls help

thanks in advance :)

Please stop using "TEXT" verbiage. This is not a cell phone

Look up the teachings of Jim Chapin, JoeMorello, Steve Smith and Jojo Mayer

technique is overrated

get yourself a couple Louisville Sluggers and some goggles and go to town

Every techniques better for different purposes, you cant really summarize technique. You might use french grip for lighter playing with more finesse, and switch to german for more power and speed! Good technique is required to get ideas from your head to the kit :)

dont listen to these guys jay, your text is annoying but who cares, technique is the foundation of the entire instrument and should not be taken lighty!

Pretty much every technique has its application/advantage. Learn them all and then your body will defer to the appropriate technique at the appropriate time. Once all of the options are programmed, the technical path of least resistance becomes automatic.
