180 Experience

Back Stage WarmUps

To simplify what it means to play drums, Rich explains in this lesson that it all comes down to Full Strokes and Taps. This lesson is going to develop your hands by providing exercises that improve power, control, stamina and DYNAMICS. Rich is also going to talk about the “UP” preparation of each stroke, allowing you to better understand how to create consistency in your hands. He’s even going to teach you how he approaches stick grip up close and personal. Rich is the man, we’re excited to see you reach another level with this lesson!
