THIS BOOK CAN HELP IMPROVE YOUR DRUMMING TECHNIQUE!


Dear drumming friend...

Today I'm going to share with you a "Must Have" for your drumming technique...

Have you ever wanted more control with rudiments? More power yet more sensitivity as well? Faster drumming with less straining and tension? A drumming technique that feels easy and natural?

If YOU want all of these things in YOUR drumming, then Stick Technique is what you have been looking for, because...

...it is a totally unique book dedicated PURELY to drum technique. It not only gives you the techniques, it explains all the mechanics in detail so that you understand HOW and WHY they work.

Here's the story of how it came about.....

Like you, I DO remember the bad old days - sweating and struggling for every bit of speed, always feeling like the sticks were just a bit out of control, rudiments not quite clean enough, never quite enough sensitivity for the tricky soft bits, always needing to cheat a bit on rolls, hands not perfectly even and occasionally dropping a stick which caught on a rim...

Does any of that sound familiar?

And I carried on like this for about 8 years until I suddenly had one of those "Ah HA!" moments. You see I realized something very important...

...then suddenly I was achieving the same improvements within four months that I'd previously managed in the whole 8 years! Within fifteen months I'd reached the level where I could perform some of the toughest solos ever written, in front of serious crowds.

I was very fortunate, as because of this change, I was able to finish my Masters degree with confidence, and since then have been a full time musician and had some pretty exhilerating times performing and teaching drum technique clinics.

I'm so glad I realized that one very important thing...

It was so important in fact, that after I'd finished university I spent a year writing a book about it - a book on drumming technique. I started to gain a reputation as a technique specialist and became in demand as a teacher for advanced students.

And that was over 10 years ago now, so I've had a long time to test and refine a lot of concepts on advanced drumming technique. This second edition, upgraded version of the Stick Technique system is a serious overhaul and expansion.

You see... no matter what type of drumming you do, or music you play, there is ONE KEY to all of the things you want your drumming to be...

...the mechanics of your hands and feet in your drumming technique...

and that one thing is the main focus of this revolutionary book which has now helped many drummers worldwide achieve real results.

And now.... YOU also can download NOW this e-book, and to make it an absolute no-brainer must-have deal, I'm going to throw in $127.45 worth of free bonuses as well.

I've looked all my life for this book!...

"Your Ebook is really gripping if you'll excuse the pun. I really like the way you have highlighted and redefined the essentials of good habits in your book and thereby opening up a whole new chapter in my own continuing development....ha! At 57 that has to be a challenge - your insight is quite remarkable.
Thank you."

An Incredible improvement in a short amount of time....

"This is the only book I recommend for drummers who are serious about improving their speed and control. I've given it to advanced students who were 'stale' and not progressing, and seen an incredibile improvement in ONE WEEK. This book is brilliant for the self motivated, enthusiastic individual who is dedicated to improving their drumming"

I've found my endurance has increased and I'm able to drum more naturally!

"I was very interested in learning drumming but it was awkward for me. The stick was spinning in my hand, bouncing at odd angles, and causing a lot of fatigue in my thumb muscles. I went to two different instructors and consulted a number of videos on the web. A good portion of the information was conflicting and when I tried to follow it my stroke still felt awkward.

I bought Jim's book and since then I've felt the need for no other resources. Instead of one stroke he has three basic strokes. Understanding these strokes helped me to see how most of the information I'd gained in other places often applied to only one of those. I now understand the reasons for the different strokes, why they work and when to use them. I've found my endurance has increased and I'm able to drum more naturally. This is an incredible deal- a low price for a book that will serve as the foundation for your drumming."

"After only reading a few pages I knew that I found what I have been looking for!"

"Dear Jim, I downloaded a copy of your book this morning. After only reading a few pages I knew that I found what I have been looking for. After a long hiatus of almost 40 years without hardly touching a drum stick I am playing again. But like, you, I am also a thinker. Although I am playing very well I quickly came to realize that I have forgotten some aspects of stick technique. I feel awkward. My sticks don't feel quite right. And I know that unless I go back to square one and relearn correct technique and stick control I am heading down a dead end."

Got Questions? Talk to the Author!

Q: What IS Stick Technique?
A:
Stick Technique is your ultimate book on drum technique... it's not like any other drum book. It contains a complete and detailed reference of the most effective drumming grips and stroke types for your playing... And much more!

Q: What makes Stick Technique so Unique, and is it for Me?
A:
Stick Technique is a must for ALL drummers. It's completely unique, because it is simply the only product available that focusses solely on drumming technique, and it outlines EVERY ASPECT of technique in a single style of execution which allows YOU to play ANYTHING! Stick Technique is your ultimate weapon because no matter what style of music you play, you will quite simply play it better with the power of great drum technique behind you.

You may have already discovered that there are loads of materials you can buy if you just want yet another book full of beats and fills.

Are you tired of the tons of "play-along" style books which claim to make you a better player, but all end up sounding the same pretty soon? Some great drummer showing off but not really showing YOU what you need to know?

You may have even discovered a few products with a more technical approach which claim to give you the "secret" to some special playing style or gimmicky trick - but they never seem to mention that using their "secret method" prevents you from playing other things properly.

Stick Technique is different!

It DOES give you a multitude of exercises targeted at developing specific areas of your technique and specific motions BUT.... what truly separates it from any other resource you own, is that it arms YOU with the knowledge of HOW to best execute the fundamental strokes, and HOW to get around the kit fast with often untaught drumming techniques - taking YOUR drumming to a whole new level!

Q: Is Stick Technique just a book?
A:
NO! - Stick Technique is much more than just a book.
Today there are THREE BONUSES with your download of the Stick Technique E-book.

Read below for the story on the exclusive Stick Technique Bonus Video lessons and how the Author will personally & individually support YOU.


Special Bonus 3- Free Video Lessons!

I understand that sometimes you need the personal touch and to actually see a demonstration.
That's why I personally provide YOU with support.

Lifetime Subscription to Video Lesson Archive!

Video library IPOD compatible or view on your computer! Current Status: 30minutes of Video!

  • "Playing Fast Flam Rudiments - in depth"
  • "Using Rebound in Rudiments"
  • "Using the 4 WORK STROKES" for maximum dynamic range!
Value: $19.95
FREE with your copy of Stick Technique!

These three videos are just the start of the amazing collection of bonus videos that will be available to you as a stick technique student.


Bonus Video's Only available for a limited time!

As I see the need for a new lesson, I add new videos - so the value you get is increasing all the time! Soon - subscription to this video archive will become a separate PAID service, so don't miss out on your chance to get a FREE LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION to this archive which will never run out no matter how much the subscription becomes worth.


 

Special Bonus 2- A Personal evaluation of your Drumming Technique using video!

Just like a face to face lesson, but better!

Strictly Limited Offer!
(This offer may be withdrawn with as little as 15 minutes notice on this webpage!)

Books and instructional videos are just fine, but wouldn't it be great if you could get someone to review and evaluate your individual Drum technique?

Until now, if you wanted personal information from an expert, you'd have to travel to their location and arrange a lesson, often at a very high price.

As a special bonus to a very small number of people, I'm offering something very special...

...I'm including a personal video evaluation of YOUR playing, so that I can offer suggestions on improving your grip, hand and finger techniques.


Personal video evaluation of your technique!
Current Status of evaluation Offer: ACTIVE

Value of this service: Over $100
currently FREE with your copy of Stick Technique!

These video evqluations will take me at least one or two hours - so considering my normal specialist tuition fees I've valued this service at a modest $100. And as you get this FREE with your book purchase, this represents amazing value!

Make sure you take your chance now, as I can only commit to doing a few of these video reviews, and they are sure to sell out really fast!


Here's how it works:

1) Purchase the "Stick Technique" e-book and work through the materials. Go over the 106 pages and develop your drum technique.

2) Whenever you are ready (it can be up to a year after your purchase), upload a video of yourself drumming to a video sharing service (such as YouTube), and send me the link.

3) I'll look over your video in depth, notice everything you are doing right and wrong, and provide critical feedback via email.

Think about it - this is actually better than a face to face lesson... I won't be showing off and showing you how brilliantly I can play... I'm just there for you, to improve your playing.


 

Special Bonus 1- Free Copy of Advanced Snare Drum Solo "Bushfire!"

As premiered at Adelaide Music Expo October 2008

This is a super advanced snare drum solo using many of the special techniques described in the book.

Extra Value = $7.50

Here's the front page to give you some idea what it's about.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Jim McCarthy.

I'm a drum clinician and teacher, and have specialized in pure technique for many years. I consider myself still a student as well, because I have a passion for constantly learning. I learn every day when I watch other drummers, and I analyze what works and what doesn’t. Performing, Educating and Learning have been my life and my living for well over 20 years.

I've had a tremendously broad background in drumming. I've played in rock bands, orchestras, marching bands - everything from high-brow contemporary music to Latin American stuff.

I spent six years at university studying percussion performance full time, and I ended up with a Masters Degree in percussion. During that time I studied every aspect of drumming technique and every kind of drumming, from rudimental drumming, to orchestral percussion. Even Japanese Drumming!

Now you may not have heard of me because I've never played for a major Headline band. YES - I do gig regularly with various bands, and I get to travel to other countries to do so - and YES I have even performed snare drum solos to audiences of over a thousand people.

Does that give me credibility as a performer? Sure it does! but there are actually quite a few drummers in the world who could make the same claim.

Does it give me credibility as a world class drumming technician and teacher? NO. There are very few drummers who can do this well.

What DOES give me the credibility to write this unique manual of drumming technique, is the 17 years I've dedicated to teaching drum technique and helping drummers all over the world.

Teaching, and creating learning resources are like anything else - they need practise to do well - and I have had years of practise, dedicating myself to the art of teaching. Now I'm not telling you all this to brag - I simply want you to understand why I am one of the very few drumming technicians in the world who is genuinely qualified to produce this book - Stick Technique.

My aim is to help YOU become a better drummer!

Introducing the book...."Stick Technique"...

The in-depth guide for drummers who want
To achieve faster drumming & improve drum technique

Imagine this…

You are performing all kinds of flips, twirls & other stick tricks effortlesly!

and... you are getting around the drum kit really fast, with complete control and ease, and explosive dynamics!

If YOU want to improve speed and precision with your snare rudiments and supercharge your drumming technique, here are your options:


1) You can go to a teacher

This is a great idea – actually I highly reccomend finding a great teacher! BUT....
That's actually really hard to do. There are just so many average (or worse) teachers out there who will end up teaching you bad habits that will plague you for life! Even if you find a great drummer to teach you, there is still a big chance that they will not be such a good teacher.

Have you ever felt like your teacher is explaining to you and demonstrating but you still just don't get it?

Have you ever felt like your teacher is teaching you a style of music you just have no interest in?

So you finally find the guy into YOUR music, with a great reputation as both a performer AND a teacher - and you discover he is too busy to take you on, or that he will charge you a fortune for lessons!...

...Particularly if you specifically want to improve your technical speed and control....
...and if you want to learn from a technique specialist you may even end up paying over $100 per hour!


2) You can try and figure it all out for yourself

You can certainly do this with standard drum patterns and the easy rolls and snare rudiments...

BUT....

What will happen is that you’ll reach a point where you won’t go any further… when your speed just wont improve, and you’ll feel like your “stuck” playing the same as you always have. I have literally taught hundreds of students who tried to work it out on their own. The problems they unknowingly develop with their technique due to lack of proper guidance can sometimes take YEARS to undo.


3) You can find books and online lessons that will help you learn

This is actually a great idea – as you can choose exactly what you want to learn that will suit your particular playing style and your exact needs.

If you want to learn Jazz drumming, then find a Jazz Drumming course.
If you want to learn Rock drumming, then find a Rock Drumming course.
There are even a few products out there that give you rudimental drumming exercises.

BUT.....

NONE of these products give much in the way of solid information on fundamental drumming technique.

AND -the little information you DO get is often conflicting and confusing.

But NOW there is the revolutionary book - Stick Technique!

If you truly want to be the best drummer you can, then Stick Technique is for you because
fundamental technique is the key to GREAT & faster drumming!


I urge you to read the rest of this page carefully.
Stick Technique has been called "The ULTIMATE BOOK of Drumming Technique"
and it can change your drumming future!


What You will find inside Stick Technique's 106 large size pages...

You will learn:

  • The most important and under-utilized aspect of your drumming, which explodes your creativity and expression on the drums. (pages 30-36)
  • How to correctly use both the matched AND traditional grip, with detailed photos and descriptions of all the stroke mechanics & correct positions for your hands. (pages 9-29 & 37-47)
  • The little known setup tricks that will have you instantly getting around the drum kit faster. (pages 64-69)
  • How to develop the various stroke types for maximum speed and control. (pages 48-63)
  • The one thing you can do to your bass drum technique to make it instantly faster. (page 77)
  • The science behind making your drumming feel easy and sound great. (pages 30-36)
  • In depth details to make your drum rolls smooth and consistent. (page 47-48)
 

Here are just a few of the detailed photographs in “Stick Technique” that will make understanding technique easy for you.

snare rudiment photos and rudimental drumming technique

“Stick Technique” is not an ordinary drum book. You’ll be analyzing in-depth photos and descriptions of exactly what to do and how to do it if you are really serious about improving the precision of your drum rudiments, and the speed of your fills..

In “Stick Technique” you will find:

206 Photographs which detail every aspect of your grip and hand movement

The essential rudiments of drumming: not written out as an arbitrary “list” but especially selected and presented to help you gain speed and control on the drums.

Examples and pictures explaining exactly how to apply the techniques to the drum kit.
applying rudiments to the drum kit.

Full Explanations and step by step photographs of visual tricks including stick twirls, finger spins, tosses and backsticking.

You won’t need any special equipment!

You'll be using most of the exercises in “Stick Technique” with nothing more than a pair of drum-sticks and a practise pad, or even a table! The fact is that it’s the work you do away from the drums, when you can really think about it and improve the mechanics of the hands that will benefit you when you get on the drums. “Stick technique” is a book you will want to take on holiday or on tour, when you might be away from your drum kit, but you still really want to improve your skills.

Dear Jim,

I downloaded a copy of your book this morning. After only reading a few pages I knew that I found what I have been looking for. After a long hiatus of almost 40 years without hardly touching a drum stick I am playing again. But like, you, I am also a thinker. Although I am playing very well I quickly came to realize that I have forgotten some aspects of stick technique. I feel awkward. My sticks don't feel quite right. And I know that unless I go back to square one and relearn correct technique and stick control I am heading down a dead end.
