I can play 4/4 like a motherfucker, and that's it.
Other than the usual paradiddles, what should I be working on as a guy who completely fucking sucks at this?
My problem right now is that my left hand is nowhere near as powerful as my right hand (), so if I don't cross-stick things and use my right hand for the hats, I can't play a damn thing. When I do that though, I have to stop, uh, hatting, to play anything else, and it sounds like ass.
What's the usual way to build strength/power with your offhand? I can't even tap 4/4 with my metronome set to ~80bpm with my left hand for more than a few measures.
double, triple quad stroke rolls
left hand tap tap, right hand tap tap etc
taptap, taptap, taptap, taptap, taptaptap, taptaptap, etc
do all of these things with your feet as well.
