Cross-Sticking Studies was designed to take the mystery out of the concept.


Includes 240 MP3 Examples!

Cross-sticking is the term used for moving from one drum to another with one hand cross­ing the other, as opposed to moving from drum to drum in the conventional man­ner. This technique has been used by many great players over the years, such as Buddy Rich, Joe Morello, and Louie Bellson, who dazzled audiences with exciting criss-crossing motions around the kit. In fact, drummers like these performed cross-sticking maneuvers with such speed and fluency, many drum students were left baffled by what was actually being played.

Cross-Sticking Studies was designed to take the mystery out of the concept. By following the series of progressive exercises laid out here, drummers who already possess a substantial level of solo skills, but who want to add a greater degree of rhythmic and visual interest to their solo work, will better understand the technique, and develop a good measure of facility on their own.
