Lesson 12
Fundamentals: The Volume Hand -
3rd Basic Movement

Here is an unusual addition to the techniques of using a flat hand or the snap of a hinged
wrist over the volume loop: the downstroke. It’s very effective for repeating notes. So, instead
of a downward movement being used solely to lower or silence the volume, the same move
when executed at the “threshold,” becomes an efficient movement to get clean articulation
while staying in rhythm.
