I've been playing drums for a while and there's something bothering me. I've watched a lot of "how to hold your drumsticks properly" videos for the 'matched grip' style (the one i use) to try to improve my 'matched grip'. I try to be relaxed and not apply too much force when holding my drumsticks, but when i start to play a little bit faster, they start to move in my hands. My thumb and index finger are being used to find the fulcrum point but from time to time i have to move my index finger to find the fulcrum point again.
Do i have to put more force when i'm holding my sticks? I've watched a lot of videos on youtube but they seem all the same to me when it comes do the matched grip...i've tried the traditional grip too..should i invest more time and effort on improving it?
Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
