Fishman - just following on from the comment you made;

I think the reason for Murrey G of bringing in 'push pull' techniques, french grip, german grip etc into a warm up, is to offer his players other ways and experiences from outside of DC, bringing it into a DC environment..

If you look at SCV iconic warm ups, its not strict DC.. its african, samba, jazz influences.. so thus giving each player other learning points when playing in the line..

And the push pull is part of how we play, but they are just utilizing a certain technique and concentrating on the isolation of it, making it focal for the player, rather than just something you do when you drum...

Yea I agree and your right about the samba stuff.
I'm obscessed with the push/pull tech. I'm just trying to figure out the next section, where he works on the lh thumb muscles. He uses the tip of the thumb to push the stick. It doesn't seem like something I use to play. I love working on it but I think that just makes me a dork.

Mystique, Flats: Wrist, a little arm(just for volume) very relaxed, squeezing is a NO NO, the are big on feeling and letting the stick vibrate to bring out the best sound, and if you use west coast technique you will get cut in a heartbeat, my friend marched Academy and is a beast, then got cut not cause he didnt have chops, just because they said his technique as west coast and they cudnt wait for him to adjust it.

There is a thread on here about the SCV tenor stick grip wherte they use the middle finger as the fulcrum instead of the index. Academy where he marched is pretty much a mini scv, Murry G. wrote alot of there exercises along with Glenn crosby, the percussion head, who preaches of more fingers and less wrist, opposite of MCM

Super Duper Gravedig but whatevaaa



I'm trying to figure out the west coast(Particularly Blue Devils) Snare Drum Technique

The biggest thing I am looking for obviously is sound quality and how they approach the drum and stroke and overall technique.

I know this has been asked before but it can't hurt to ask again.


Any help is greatly appreciated :D

Yup. They have changed from the relaxed style, to Cadets style I think.

west coast is really relaxed and east coast is lot more wrist/play through the drum. Doesn't necessarily apply to east-west corps anymore. Like Boston plays west and the cadets are very east. you follow?

It's still relaxed. Just now, they'll actually be able to clean it.
There's no way around reality, and there's no way to fix things that have already happened. It is what it is, we are what we are, and there is nothing more to life than that. Rule #9.

If you basically take the explanation that someone gave of Tom Aungst's technique guidelines earlier, that's what we're using. I don't understand why people think it's so tight. Yes, I get it, the Cadets look tight, but Blue Stars play like the Blue Stars, which is extremely relaxed. We are not the cadets. (we're better lol)
