Thumb nerve issues

Posted: Mon Nov 10, 2014 8:49 pm



Hi everyone, I've been playing tenors for 2 1/2 years and I dabble in snare music to keep my traditional grip fresh, and because snare breaks are cool. 8) I use the three C's approach for my left hand (pointer finger over and thumb ontop the last joint, middle just relaxes on the stick, stick rests on the cuticle of ring finger). But recently, I've been working on Ralph Nader's road trip lick, and while trying to do the accent-flam-tap part, the meaty pocket where the stick goes against the base of my thumb started to feel jumpy. I stopped because it hurt (i guess i would describe it as pain? just that gross nerve feeling). If I push through it, my thumb gets tingly and less sensitive, so probably not good. Is there a clear technique mistake that would cause this or can it only be seen in a video?

I know that this is an old thread, but do you have something like that file for tenors? That snare packet was very informative.
