Part 2: Left hand wrist rotation
Regarding 8 on a hand, are there any pointers you might suggest for those that attempt this exercise using traditional grip?
I’ve been listening to a lot of snare vids, and it seems that the left hand traditional sounds lower than the right hand. I had a question about keeping sound quality the same in both hands. I’m not sure if it’s how I’m holding the sticks of something.
I’m really looking to improve my wrist rotation in my left hand, especially in the low end of playing.
Hey! I’m auditioning for Gateway percussion and I got all good feedback on my technique, but they said I needed to turn my left wrist more. Are there any exercises or anything you know to help me achieve a better wrist turn?
