More on the "One-hand roll"...

Post by mikejames » Fri Apr 28, 2006 4:19 am

In my book, (free download at http://www.mikejamesjazz.com/dfl_reviews.html ) I describe a method for learning the one-hand roll (like Buddy played on the Montreal cymbal solo) as "playing a shuffle, and gradually removing the shuffle feel". That's a reasonable explanation, but it's text only. Video is better, so...

Derrick Pope has some (free to download) videos discussing a Moeller-ish method of doing it, in the video section at Drummerworld. There are currently 3 different videos, which I think would be great for any drummer interested in these techniques, including foot technique. Check 'em out at http://www.drummerworld.com/drummervideo.html

Always something we can improve on...
