Re: [DevilStickForum] Re: Hi
- I have been very eager to try stilts while playing with sticks, fire or not.
There was a group selling all sorts of equipment at our local Busker
Festival. They also wanted such a large sum of cash for their set of stilts
that I was deflated from the idea for a little time. I have been eyeing the
type that a guy who does drywall work uses.
I am always trying to fine tune my basic sticking, it helps for practising
more complicated stuff. I have been lately trying different transitions from
hand to hand. (my that's hard to describe) more simply, I am spinning it in
one hand and then I switch hands, with the goal in mind is for the devil
stick to not really cange what it was doing. (my friend who is a drummer
sort of gave me an analogy, a perfect drumroll should sound uniform, you
should not be able to tell the differnce between on stick hitting the drum
from the other) I have tried it with a propellor type spin and found it to
be a good part of my practice regimen, so I have been trying it with
everything that i do with the stick. It has helped my left hand single
sticking considerably. i'll try to compile a list of tricks that I know.(the
names may be changed due to everybody calls them different things it seems)

I like the propeller version. Some friends of mine once told me it
looked like I wasn't holding up the devil stick at all, that I was
just sort of waving my handsticks around while it floated and spun in
the middle on its own.

why not just use the names on devilstick.org?
