Drumming is a journey. That means things change. I am frequently finding new ways to do things that I already play. When it comes to my drumming, I’m always tweaking my technique, my vocabulary and my philosophy. This article is the result of that kind of flexibility. I recently re-discovered a sticking that works really well for a pattern that I wrote about not too long ago.
Here’s the link to the original post: “Nasty Lick #109: Original Sticking”
The original sticking I showed you is definitely valid. It works. But when I re-discovered this other sticking, it felt even better and smoother to me. I’m going to use this new sticking instead of the other one from now on.
Here’s the worksheet for “Nasty Lick #109” re-done and updated with the new sticking: “Nasty Drum Lick 109 REVISED”
