Finger Technique

Postby Homki890 » Wed May 07, 2008 11:58 pm

In the Drum Lessons forum, there's a thread where Gunman posted a video with some little finger exercises, on a search for finger technique.

Well, Finger technique works wonders on the hand, both in relaxing the hand muscles and strengthening the hand. I used to do a lot of these when I did magic, but got out of magic, and then got out of the exercises. These videos are from Greg Irwin, the last word in finger fitness.

I found these after looking at the thread in Drum Lessons. These are great for all sorts of things. Guitarist, drummers, magicians, jugglers... the list could go on and on!

I do some stretching of the hands and fingers before I play, but this will help take things to the next level.

Thanks for bringing them all together, Homki890!

That's awesome, I can't do ANY of the fast ones yet. I had to send it to a non drumming mate who does magic as I now he'll love them!

Nice one Homki! :)

Yeah, he's very well known in Magic circles. He works closely with a man named De'vo von Shattenreich. De'vo is a underground legend at XCM, or Xtreme Card Manipulation. Google him, you'll find a lot and also very little about him. He;s immensely popular, but because he's an underground person, there is not a single picture of his face anywhere.

But yeah, these things are great. Could someone sticky this somewhere?

Yeah, I can imagine this'll help with my finger speed on guitar. I'm pretty damn fast, but these exercises look like they'd help with coordination and finger independence.

Great find! :D

It promotes the overall health and fitness of your hands.

It develops strength and dexterity in your fingers, necessary for playing with the fingers.

It helps mobilize your entire hand, so motions become easier and with less effort than before.

It is a great trick you can do for friends and family whenever there is a "Look what I can do!" competition raging.

It is a great help to drummers, who base their reputations on their hands. It is folly to not consider steps to improve the quality of one's hands and the overall health of said limb as well. We must do everything in our power to preserve the longevity of our hands. Once they're gone, we can no longer drum. It's that simple. So take good care of them. These vids help you do just that.
