|F = full stroke|
D = downstroke
U = upstroke
T = tap, or low stroke
If we apply this concept to Accents and Rebounds, the book becomes far more useful.
In spending a little time breaking these examples down one stroke at a time and playing them really really slowly, focusing on the mechanics of each stroke, I found that my motions became smoother and more effortless, and as a result I got faster. I recommend writing in the strokes and really focusing on them for awhile. Eventually choosing the correct stroke to apply will become second nature and you’ll be able to move through the book more quickly. Do be careful though, as much like Stick Control, you can easily go overboard with this and run it into complete tedium to the point where the amount of time you’re putting in is far disproportionate to the results you are getting.
