THERE IS MATCH GRIP AND TRADITIONAL GRIP

IF YOU DON’T LEARN THE RIGHT WAY TO HOLD AND USE YOUR STICKS,YOU CAN END UP EXPENDING A LOT OF EXCESS ENERGY AND POSSIBLY DAMAGING YOUR HANDS OR WRISTS. SO LEARN THE RIGHT WAYTO PLAY FROM THE START. THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO HOLDING YOUR DRUM STICKS.

 MATCH GRIP“ BOTH IS HELD THE SAME WAY.

TRADITIONAL GRIP REQUIRES YOU TO HOLD THE STICKS IN LEFT HAND DIFFERENT THEN THE RIGHT.

EITHER OF THESE GRIPS ARE OK. MOST ROCK AND LIGHT ROCK MUSIC, TH DRUMMER WILL MOST LIKELY PLAY MATCH GRIP, IT’S A LOT EASIER TO MOVE AROUND THE TOM – TOMS AND THE REST OF THE TRAP SET. NOTE: I ALWAYS SUGGEST YOU LEARN THE TRADITIONAL GRIP FIRST. IT MAKES PLAYING EASIER WHEN YOU PLAY MATCH GRIP AND MORE AGGRESSIVE MUSIC. MATCH GRIP IS THE MOST COMMONLY USED GRIP AMONG ROCK DRUMMERS. WHEN BOTH YOUR HANDS USE IDENTICAL GRIP, ITS EASIER TO LEARN; THAT IS WHY I SUGGEST YOU LEARN TRADITIONAL GRIP FIRST. MAKE THE HARDER OF TO A FIRST LEARN SO THAT THE SECOND LEARN IS THAT MUCH EASIER. AND DOING MATCH GRIP FIRST DOESN’T LET YOU DEVELOP THE PROPER DRUMMING TECNECCKS. ONE REASON DRUMMERS AS THEY PROGRESS PLAY MATCH GRIP IS THAT INSTINCTIVELY YOU REACH OUT YOUR ARMS AND GRAB THE STICKS NATURALLY THAT WAY. IT’S 3″ (INCHES) FROM THE BACK END OR THE BUTT END OF THE STICK AND GRABS IT IN YOUR THUMB AND FIRST JOINT OF YOUR INDEX FINGER, THEN CLOSES YOUR FINGERS LOOSELY AROUND THE STICKS. THEN TURN YOUR WRIST SO BACK END OF YOUR HAND IS FACING UPWARD. AND THE STICK IS ANGLED INWARD AT A 45° (DEGREE) ANGLE.
