Torsion of the drumsticks is a very effective technique, which many famous drummers use during the performance of music, for example, Gerry Brown.
To learn how to twist the drumsticks, you need to train a lot.
Bear in mind that twist the drum Sticks Akin to torsion of a stick in karate. Fintas with drumsticks can be made with the help of two fingers, and with the help of four fingers. The rotation clockwise and in the opposite direction looks equally spectacular. After 2-3 years of regular playing on drums, this skill appears on its own. Sometimes it can be worked out, especially giving it time.
Put the wand between the index and middleFingers perpendicular to the palm of your hand and try to rotate it. Imagine holding a propeller in your hands. During unwinding, the stick should always be located only between the index and middle fingers. At the beginning of training you can help with other fingers, but eventually the wand will spin in your hand easily and at ease, as if without your help.
Note that you do not need to rotate the wand like a paddle - first one end, then the other. Try to keep the hand still, moving only with two working fingers.
Note that the fingers should be kept flat, only a slight bend in the phalanges is allowed.
Try using several exercises forDevelopment of hands and fingers. This will help you to master the spinning of the drumsticks more quickly. First, do the single strokes by rotating the rods: R-L-R-L-R-L, where R is the rotation to the right, L is to the left.
When you can perform this exercise at a fast pace, go on to double-strike: R-R-L-L-R-R-L-L-R-R-L-L.
Having mastered this technique, try to execute the paradigm: R-L-R-R-L-R-L-L-R-L-R-R-L-R-L-L.
