    I find myself doing this sometimes if I'm really in the groove! I have no technique at all either... I'm a guitarist after all!

            This is my favorite thing ever.

            Buttering the bread... hmmm BUT I found it's a thing better left to A-hats, why? The rubber on e-hats grip the sticks just enough to bother me during the sideways motion.

            Raising the stick on the off beat though, I can't NOT do that, it's instinctive.

            I can't remember which lesson I was watching online, but an important thing I took onboard was "always looking for rest time" and by that, I don't mean; going for a beer between songs.
            I mean it's - buttering the bread. Half a second where your muscles can relax, or to put it another way, 75% of the effort for the same beat.


            One thing you didn't cover though; to me, the most important of all:
            That's half a second gained where you can be... the flamboyant drummer! Forget the technicalities, raise your whole arm in the air on that offbeat! Let the crowd know your awesome!

                  I am an old bald skinny guy, who is new to drumming. and freakin loving it to the max.
                  I had never heard of a flam before starting drumming.
                  but now have been brought up to speed.
                  I have read (double check anything I say, in case this isn't right), that flamboyant is playing 2 single strokes with alternating hands.....well, here, I'll quote the wiki: "flam A flam consists of two single strokes played by alternating hands (RL or LR). The first stroke is a quieter grace note followed by a louder primary stroke on the opposite hand. The two notes are played almost simultaneously, and are intended to sound like a single, broader note.[5] The temporal distance between the grace note and the primary note can vary depending on the style and context of the piece being played."

                  now, the tricky part is that you must do it in a bouyant manner.
                  I usually accomplish this by pretending that I'm on a boat, sailing along, entertaining my beautiful supermodel girlfriend with my chops, especially my expert flam work.

                      too funny dude. you rock.
                      am signed up at Groove3.
                      watched a lesson last night with Ed Shaughnessy and Clem DeRosa.
                      they were talking about the 4 T's and listening.
                      absolutely phenomenal teaching, man.

                        Same here. I can't do it on my PCY135 I am using for HH as it grabs the stick too much when I do a side motion on it... just enough to throw me off after a few bars.
                        It is a fun thing to do, but for me, best when playing acoustic HH, not my e-HH.

                            I tried this some years ago, after watching Ringo, I thought it was so cool, but very difficult to do on my CY-5. I still do it occasionally on the VH11's but not live, I can't hold a tight groove lol. Once I've done built an A2E hat I'll get back on it! :-)
