This week's lesson was supposed to be tony royster. (Don't worry - the tony lesson is coming soon.) Then I got an email from one of my coaching students. I'm paraphrasing, but it was something like "please explain the kick drum in detail."
Which leads me to an obvious point about my tendencies given a choice between another hour of careful transcription, or a swiftly organized presentation on something that's second nature followed by an extended happy hour, and a deeper point about how some of the most valuable insights are lost on the "teacher", who takes them for-granted.
In any case, it turns out I have a story to tell, as a guy who used to play exclusively heel-down, who's recently come over to the Dark Side.
Anyway, you’re probably here for the transcription.
And for the comment thread this week, the obvious question: agree with the lesson or disagree? Are you a died-in-the-wool heel-downer (don't be a Downer;), or do you swear the jojo heel-toe technique is the only game in town? Learn me!
