Pressure in the left hand
Posted: Tue Feb 19, 2019 11:56 pm
I've been trying to understand the technique for rolls but I feel like I've hit a major road block. No matter what I do I get tension in my wrist when I try to add pressure from my fulcrum. My tech talks about using the index finger to apply pressure instead of only using the thumb but I cant find any way with my thumb, index finger, or any combination of the two that will give me good sound quality and accurate rhythms without tensing up my wrist. Can someone try to offer an explanation of how to add pressure with left hand traditional that is more detailed than simply "squeeze from the fulcrum?"
