NEXT A few preliminaries toward developing excellent hand technique for a "lifetime"!
"Moeller made you play things with a continuous motion," Chapin said in a 1981 ModernDrummer article. "The motion was the message. You made the motion and the stick played it. After a while, it almost played itself."
(Sanford) Moeller analyzed everything and stressed taking everything apart. If you played a paradiddle, you would learn what each hand did by itself. So from the time Moeller showed me that, I was able to think in terms of doing one thing with one hand and one thing with the other. That was the reason I got into the things that later developed into my book, 'Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer'." Jim Chapin
