Equally spectacular looks clockwise rotation in the opposite direction. After 2-3 years of regular drumming this skill appears by itself. Sometimes it can be worked out, specifically focusing this time.
Put the stick between your index and middlefingers perpendicular to the palm of your hand and try to rotate it. Imagine holding in your hands the propeller. During the unwinding rod must always be placed only between the index and middle fingers. At the beginning of training can help the other fingers, but eventually starts spinning rod in your hand with ease, though without your help.
Please note that it is not necessary to rotate the stick as a paddle - first at one end, then - else. Try to keep your arm stationary, moving only two working fingers.
Note that the fingers should be kept exactly, is allowed only slight bend in the phalanges.
