So normally when I'd hold a drum stick I'd grip it between my thumb and index finger, sorta bracing it with my index finger and middle. I think that is how people normally do it. Well today I was messing around and discovered I could apply a little bit of bass technique to the mix. While doing a drum roll, instead of bouncing my stick with my index and middle at the same time, I alternate them. I don't know if anyone else has ever tried this. I'm also expanding it even more by bouncing it on my index, middle, and ring. My ultimate goal is to do drum rolls with one hand. Any one seen this anywhere else?
