i love it!! nice tutor... your so kind sir!!

This is a great video. When I started out playing, I was unfortunately taught the wrong drumstick technique as I was urged to grip the sticks tightly. However, over time and with a lot of practice I managed to correct my technique by learning how to hold the sticks properly.
