How do I twirl a drum stick? Whether the term spinning or twirling is used, we are essentially talking about the same thing. This question comes up in most beginner drum lessons. It may not be essential to playing, but it's a lot of fun!

Showmanship definitely has its place in drumming, and in this video, we show you how to spin your drum sticks. Simon also references drummers that tastefully blend showmanship with the most important task of all - being a musical, solid drummer. His examples are Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean) and the late, great John Blackwell Jr (Price, Justin Timberlake). Have fun, and enjoy the challenge!

Note: In the video below, Simon references a Special Feature Video on Grip. You can view it here.
