Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing my Extreme Hands Makeover Plan! This is my 26 step plan to rebuild hand mechanics from the ground up as quickly and effectively as possible. I’ve arrived at these steps and the most effective sequence there-of after nearly two decades of trial and error on the job with somewhere around 1000 students. It’s the perfect plan for everyone who drums with sticks, from beginners to seasoned pro’s, to drumset and orchestral/rudimental players and beyond. I believe you’ll be shocked and amazed at the results you get, many have gone before you and have already gotten fantastic results. Get on it!
Important notes before you start:
In order to get the most out of the Extreme Hands Makeover, be sure to go through the steps in order. Take your time to fully understand the concepts and reasoning behind each step before you start playing. Then play along with me in the videos (as applicable) and then do the workouts cross-referenced underneath each step in the makeover. Please note that everything should be played with American grip or if specified, French grip. (Check out this lesson on the "Three Matched Grips" for details.) Spend plenty of time on each step until it feels completely easy and natural. Only then are you ready to move on.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your sticks and play along!
