How do you practice both traditional and matched grip??

Posted: Sat Sep 05, 2015 8:31 pm



So I want have both grips mastered so I can have the ability to expand my drumming grips like Im going to tryout bass for indoor/drum corps and snare as well. So I want to have the grips well balanced so I won't have that much of an issue when switching, thanks!!

Simply play 4 reps of whatever you are practicing at the time:

Rep 1- right hand lead traditional
Rep 2- left hand lead traditional
Rep 3- right hand lead matched
Rep 4- left hand lead matched

This will expand your practice time X 2, but that what it takes if you
want to work both grips.

Also, you need to know that match grip is the all-purpose grip, but each instrument has a "matched" grip with its own nuances. Bass grip is different from snare which is different from marimba which is different from timpani.

So you need to understand what you're practicing for any why... i.e., you need to practice with a purpose, rather than just to learn matched grip.
Without a metronome its not drumming, its just hacking.
