Many drummers have been taught, “Keep all 4 fingers on the stick at all times!” To this I’m going to go ahead and say no–don’t do it. Not that you want to go the style of the old English lady drinking tea, but there are many times when having all 4 fingers on the stick will lead to crushing, stiffness, lack of speed and general sadness. Nobody likes sadness. And yes, that’s the Sydney Opera House in the background. This was filmed during my recent clinic tour of Australia. G`day mate!
