Saturday distraction – stick tricks

We’re all told that stick tricks aren’t necessary to be a good drummer. Don’t bother practising them, we’re told, because your sound matters more.

Here’s 5 clips to inspire you to waste your time. In a good way.

The internets are loaded with how-to videos for stick tricks. If you have a favourite that you can do, or are working on, let me know in the comments!
