Post How do I treat my 16s'?
I got myself a practice/drum pad and a pair of drum sticks; but how do I teach myself 16? Any guide lines?

Thanks to some guy on this board :roll: I came on the fantastic idea to buy myself a practice/drum pad and a pair of drum sticks! To be serious I think we should start out with getting the rudimentals together by playing whateveritscalledadiddles like RRLL LLRR RLLL LRRR etc. I noticed my left arm and wrist are a lot less accurate so RLLL seems like a good exercise to start. RLRL is cool too of course. Now before you think I'm a total lunatit: L=hit with left and R is hit with right.

Some comments on my view on this subject from more experienced drummers would be awesome. Leaving a question from Drew1986 unanswered for more than three weeks is a shame. :x

Thanks though; I can play my 16's decently now but whenever I speed up; I messed up.

LRLLRLRR rocks! I'm addicted to it now. My left hand is a complete moron though. He does the job but the strokes don't look as straight as the ones that I do with my right hand. Any tips on how to improve it? Or will the problem solve after practising some of the earlier mentioned patterns for a while?

Play 32 beats.

R => Right Hand
L => Left Hand



It's suppose to be RR LL RR LL RR LL RR LL.

Play it slowly.

But train your left hand just LL LL LL LL LL and speed up.

And RR RR RR RR RR and then speed up, then play RR LL RR LL RR LL RR LL slowly, then speed up.

Ok, that makes sense. I practised a lot of RR LL already and I noticed that LL RR feels different than RR LL because the rythm seems to come from the right side of my body (so left side of the brain :)). It's really comparable to the up stroke down stroke difference with guitar. Do you tap your foot BTW? Seems really usefull with the bass drum in mind besides training on steadyness. I'm becoming more and more convinced that practising drums will do wonders for my guitar playing and it feels good to feel like a total newbie again because the learning curve is so much more rewarding in the beginning :D.
