Time to work on fingers!


Silver Member
This is what I've been doing to kill the downtime.. improving my finger strokes.
Really enjoying Rick Dior's Youtube videos.. he studied with Joe Morello and really knows his stuff!
I think I've gotten out of practice with lack of playing over the past year ..
After 3 weeks of working on fingers every day - I'm finding my double strokes and rudiments have sharpened up a lot!
Basically no wrist strokes.. just isolating the fingers and running through all the rudiments.
Now I feel like I'm back on track..!
Anyway thanks Rick.. great inspiration!

I like Rick's videos, he explains things very well and he obviously knows his stuff. I bought one of his books.
