Hi friends. I’ve stuck in a problem. It would be nice if anyone can help me out in it.

Whenever I play drums with the sticks, they just slip off from my hand. My hands aren’t even wet but they slip sometimes. Can anyone tell me how can I keep them attached to my hands?

  I believe I did,  But the name I remember was Jazz Crest it was my first set. My folks bought it for me around 1969 or 70. It was metal flake red 4 piece, I was very happy to get it but I also knew it was a beginner's set.
  I beat on it for about two years and I finely learned to keep a beat, got over the cross arm thing, LOL.
  I don't have it any more though, as soon as I was old enough to make money at the ripe old age of 15 I bought a used pearl set from a garage sale in the big city. Then I traded the Jazz Crest for an electric guitar and amp, and taught myself to play that as well.
  It's funny I just recently was looking at old family pictures and there it was my very first gig and my Jazz Crest, the one and only picture of it.

I think it is rather obvious how taking lessons on any instrument or classes on any subject is beneficial.

If you want to learn the basics and get a good foundation, you should study with a qualified instructor who knows the subject matter. Someone who is well-rounded and knows how to teach. The best instructors are those that don't just have the head knowledge but also have years of experience doing the very thing you are wanting to learn.

It's a vast topic actually ... but those are my broad points on why.

FYI ... there is a lot of good and bad information out on the internet for those wanting to learn on their own. Studying with a qualified instructor will always get you on the right path with the basics. If you want to continue in intermediate and advanced studies ... an educated, well-rounded, experienced instructor is always going to be the best. You want someone that teaches you how to teach yourself.

I'm thinking you just want to play drums for the hell of it? You will probably get nowhere without lessons. Even just the basics will be a big help. Learning to play rudiments will help put your hands and fingers in control of  playing with sticks.  ;)

Technique(s) / Doug Tann's Ostinato Challenge #1
« Last post by Bart Elliott on July 28, 2016, 08:48 AM »
Long-standing Drummer Cafe VIP member and contributor, Doug Tann, just shared a new lesson with our community — it's entitled Left-Side Double Ostinato Challenge.

I created an audio example of the exercise to help get a feel of what the end result should sound like.

If you are looking for a challenging exercise to work out your left foot and hand, this new drum lesson from Doug Tann is sure to keep you in the practice room awhile.

Hey Tom,

interesting idea! I don't quite see the pain this would solve, but still it could be a toy that people want nonetheless.

Have you gotten responses so far? Any new insights? (If not, PM me or answer here. I think I can point you to some resources to make the questionnaire more effective.)

Keep the ideas flowing! ;-)
