Intro to the SPLIT HAND technique

In this lesson, Raquy show you how to begin playing the Turkish SPLIT HAND technique.

In order to do this, your left hand is "split" into playing with the separate fingers.

When you play the "ONE" finger, your "THREE" finger is getting ready to play next. Make sure that your elbow is up and that you have a straight line. Your fingers should be held straight and pointing to the right (not down).

Most of this motion is generated with the fingers. You should be able to hold your wrist down against the drum and still move the fingers.

Go slowly and try to relax as much as possible.
