Can you eloborate more on sticking technique? Last time I checked we were talking about double strokes! Personally I would start someone out on a drum before moving to a cymbal! There is a little bit of rebound when using the hi-hat but you will have to stroke it out a little more! Neither the hi-hat nor carpet are in the same realm as a pillow! Don't put words in my mouth and don't change your story! I knew you hadn' t witnessed it!
Sticking technique i.e.-practicing on soft surfaces (such as a pillow) to train your hands and wrists instead of depending on rebound so that way you can "stroke it out a little more" when playing on something else other then a tightly tuned marching drum. You asserted that the rebound of a drum is required to practice and play proper doubles, which it is not.
This is getting no where! Thanks for the debate! No harsh feelings! Good luck to you!
Sorry man, I was really trying to make my point without seeming like a dick or trashing your opinion. It sounded different in my head then when I re-read it....
No apology necessary! It's all good! It's all personal preference man! My way has worked for me and many of my students! I wasn't trying to be a dick either! I'm just very passionate! I look forward to debating with you in the future! Thanks again my fellow drummer!
