Musical Benefits of the “Freehand Technique” a.k.a. the One-Handed Roll

The “Freehand Technique” (a.k.a. the “One-Handed Roll”): Utilizing the rim of the drum as your fulcrum, enabling you to play complex rhythms with one hand, opening up a completely new world of possibilities both rhythmically and musically. Not only did I learn the technique for myself, but I learned that it is a very teachable technique and is really a viable tool that every drummer/percussionist should have in his arsenal.
