Ne STICK CONTROL for the SNARE DRUMMER atirin Lyperiice Price $3.50 By GEORGE LAWRENCE STONE ‘Nationally Known Authority on Rudimental Dremming al af the Stone Drum and Xylophone Sehoel of Boston ‘Drum Ealtor of “The International Mosiclan” PUBLISHED BY George B. Stone & Sen, Inc. P.O. Box 324 Randolph, MA 02368 (U.S.A.) © Copyuight 1996 by George B. Stone & Son, Ine. Copyright renewed 1963 by George B. Stone, Inc. ey aa Ge ee Made in U. A. A PREFACE It scems that there are too many drummers whose work is of a rough-and-ready variety and whose tech- nical proficiency suffers in comparison with that of the players of other instruments. Of course, technical proficiency can como only through continued,well-directed practise. Tho more practise one docs the moro proficiency he acquires. Many concert pianists practise hours and hours every day. They continue practising after they gradu- ate from the student period and enter into the professional field. Violinists, cornetists and tho players of other instruments do likewise. Through regular and systematic practise they“keep in shape.” To the uninitiated, the art of drumming appears easy—so easy in fact that unless the drum studont has had the advantage of expert advice, ho may fail to realizo the importance of the long hours of hard, painstaking practise that must be put in before he is technically prepared to enter the profes- sional field with the confidence that his efforts will measure up to approved musical standards. However, in defence of the drummer, let it be noted that while the pianist and violinist have access to many hundreds of elomentary and advanced text-books, covering every known branch of their art, the drummer’ library is limited to a score or so of instruction books, and not all of these containing the specific type, or generous amount of practise material necessary to the development of that high de- gree of fundamental mechanical dexterity required from the modern drummer. It is in realization of this need and in answer to requosts from drum instructors in all parts of the country that this series of practise-rhythms has been prepared and presented herewith under the title of— “STICK CONTROL- For The Snare Drummer” “STICK CONTROL” is a highly specialized practise-book, dealing with just one branch of the art of drumming. It is an advanced book, consisting of a progressive, highly concentrated collection of rhythms, arranged in calisthenic form, which,if practisod regularly and intelligently, will enable one to acquire control, speed, floxibility, touch, rhythm, lightness, delicacy, power, endurance, preciseness of execution and muscular co-ordination to a degree far in excess of his present ability. “STICK CONTROL” is intended to develop finger, wrist and arm muscles, which to the rudimental drum- mor, playing in exhibition or contest, means speed, power and endurance, and to the orchestral drummer, specializing in lighter types of playing, means clean, erisp execution, precise interpretation and flexibil- ily of control, especially in‘pianissimo” rolls and delicate shading. “STICK CONTROL” contains a wealth of material for the dovelopment of the drummer's weak or awkward hand (which to the right handed individual is his left), thereby enabling him to acquire ambidextority in sufficient degree for smooth, rhythmic hand-to-hand execution. Its stick-work being entirely mechanical in scope, “STICK CONTROL” does not conflict with any of the known “systems” of drumming, therefore any instructor may assign its pages, at his discretion,concurrently with his regular assignment to the pupil. The expert instructor will find in the rhythms of “STICK CONTROL" an abundance of material designed to make his own daily“work-out"more in- teresting and productive. An hour a day with“STICK CONTROL” will work wonders for one, whether he be rudimental ex- hibitionist or concert drummer; student or expert; jazz drummer or symphonist.The only vital r quirement for this book (or, indeed, for any drum instruction book) is regular practise; and, to the student, the author recommends the services of a local export instructor, whenever such services are available. GEORGE LAWRENCE STONE 8-38 HOW TO PRACTISE “STICK CONTROL” It will be noted that the practise-rhythms in‘“STICK CONTROL” are numbered and are without tho customary musical ending. This is so that each rhythm may be practised over and over before proceeding to the next one, which method of practise is the most conducive to quick and satisfactory results. c ‘Tho author recommends that each rhythm be practised 20 TIMES WITHOUT STOPPING. Then go on to the next one. THIS IS IMPORTANT. “STICK CONTROL” cannot serve its purpose as well in any other way. Practise with the metroncme is also recommended, and at several different speeds, varying from ex- tremely slow to extremely fast; and again without the metronome, in the open and closed style, i. e., starting very slowly, gradually accelerating to top speed, then slowing down again, finally ending at the original tempo. Practise at all times with relaxed muscles, stopping at the slightest feeling of tension. Remember, the rhythms in“ STICK CONTROL” are “conditioners.” They are designed to give control. Control begins in muscularly relaxed action. A WORD TO THE ORCHESTRAL DRUMMER:—Do not let the word “rudimontal” frighten you nor prevent you from putting in a normal amount of practise on power, high-hand practise and the open roll. This will not spoil tho light touch, delicate shading or fine-grained effects demanded of you in modern musical interpretation. To the contrary, by giving you a better control of the sticks, it will enable you to produce even finer and more delicate offects than horotofore. LIKEWISE, A WORD TO THE RUDIMENTAL DRUMMER: —Do not hesitate to devote a portion of your practise period to lightness and touch, and especially to the playing of the closed roll, for if your Practise is confined entirely to power and endurance your execution will become “one-sided,” hoavy and clumsy. Strange to says practise in lighter execution will, by giving you a fuller control of the sticks, help your power, endurance and speed. ‘The open roll,” referred to throughout the book (and beginning on page 11), is the rudimental roll of two beats (no more) of each stick, in rhythmic alternation. Tho ‘closed roll;” notated on page 42 and thereafter, is the one commonly used ‘in light orchestral play- ing. It has several rebounds to each stick movement, instead of just one» this being produced bya slight additional pressure, applied to the sticks as the roll is executed. This closed roll is not to be confused with that exaggerated type of roll known as the'‘scratch roll.” produced by digging tho sticks down in- to the drumhead with muscles tenso, at a ridiculously high rate of speod, for which neither the author, nor indeed any musician, has any use, Practise each rhythm 20 TIMES WITHOUT STOPPING. Then go on to the next one.
