Jim Chapin Drum Clinic: The Moeller Technique – Part 2
There was a question about the Moeller technique in this episode. This is an advanced technique (i.e. – something I wouldn’t teach to a beginner) but I wanted to share these videos to give you background on this technique. I will address the question about Jim Chapin “rolling the forearms” in the next episode.
