Never realized how much 'finger' control was needed for playing drums!

When I first started tackling drums, I was surprised at much refined finger control in your ring finger and pinky (behind the fulcrum point) was needed to manage a drumstick.

I have some decent finger coordination from years of playing the piano, but I found that the movement of your fingers in a grip-like position was actually closer to guitar player territory (gripping the neck of the guitar) than it was relevant and applicable to pianist finger coordination.

Food for thought! Anyway - discovered this Maria Wulf channel - it was quite helpful :slight_smile:
