Hi, my name is Roman Lomtadze. I am a drummer of the band called Send the Stages, here in Los Angeles, California, and I'm here to show you how to spin your drumstick. So, there are different techniques how to do it. There is, we call it, kind of a fake one, because you don't really spin it, you just put the drumstick between your two fingers and you move your fingers basically like this, and while you do that, this is going to, this is how it's going to look like from the beginning, but then it's going to get better, and you can spin it this way. So, it looks good, just from the side like this because from the front, you kind of could tell that we're not spinning it between fingers, but just like we're kind of faking it, but from the side it looks pretty cool. And you can play different techniques on drums, and you can do this simple move, and, you know, it looks kind of cool. And now we have another one. It's a little more complicated, and you kind of go backwards with the stick. I'm going to show you from different angles, so it looks something like that, from the front. And another one when we go in between of each finger, and we go forward with the drumstick. So, this is kind of the result, and I'll try to do it slow. My name is Roman Lomtadze, and this is how you spin your drumstick.
