The techniques described in this lesson are a unique combination of the best of everything concerning hand control that Dave learned from Jim Piesse, Jim Chapin & Joe Morello. Learn how to harness and use to your advantage the natural rebound energies that are generated when you hit a pad, drum or cymbal with a stick by optimising your leverage point, grip, and hand movement. Grips and movements discussed include German Timpani Grip, French Timpani Grip, American 3/4 Grip and Marching Grip. Dave also presents Jim Chapin's idea of "No Droop", which serves to update elements of the Moeller Technique as traditionally taught for decades around the world.

This is a video lesson by Dave Goodman (PhD) showing you several simple steps for generating a large number of your own unique syncopated eighth-note / quaver figures, and for developing those figures for improvisation around the drumset in soloistic ways. You will learn to ‘fill in the gaps’ in syncopated eighth-note / quaver figures in ways that Dave learned from Jim Chapin, to convert these figures into triplets, and to play them around the drumset using your bass drum foot as a ‘third hand’. You’ll improve your ability to creatively improvise some hip and original interactive solo and ensemble figures using the full range of your instrument, and your new figures will also have deep conventional roots.

Preview available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/8vlLoheAysQ. The techniques described by Dave Goodman (PhD) in this lesson are designed to overcome the problem of what is commonly referred to as 'four-way coordinated independence'. To do this, Dave has implemented a new take on the single stroke roll rudiment by naming the combinations of notes that require you to coordinate your four limbs for a variety of applications on the drumset. This was originally presented in Dave's doctoral thesis under the headings 'Grouping and Ordering of Limbs' and 'Omni-adroitness'. Dave will teach you how to understand and employ the new names, bringing your four limbs into musical accordance with one another. You can also use these note names to analyse different kinds of drumming, and to learn new pieces and styles, especially those that tend to involve more difficult coordination, such as funk, Latin American, and polyrhythmic jazz comping.
