Tips for Tenors
+ We will be using a staccato stroke and it will be extremely rare when we use a legato stroke. Power comes from control. Rolls, flams, and even the advanced rudiments in combination with sweeps can be played with staccato, it just takes practice.
+ Never allow your fingers to leave the stick for any reason. Floppy fingers cause sloppy sound. :)
How to Crossover
+ Mastering this will allow you to play all the fancy things snare drummers play, but around five drums.
Highway to the Playing Zones
+ Remember, your playing zones are designed to give you the ability to play extremely fast and precise with very little movement around the drum. Playing outside those zones increases your playing fatigue since your arms are doing extra work- the result is that your arms get tired quicker.
Playing with Speed
+ The speed displayed in the video comes from control of the staccato strokes and extreme control of the legato ones while minimizing arm movement.
Remember: "With great speed, comes great responsibility."
