oh, oh, hey. hey hows it going?

hahaha

Cool technique. Kinda tricky.. When I was doing the roll I only use the four fingers.

I guess adding the thumb gives it that extra "OOOMPH"

the end reminded me of bruce lee's nuchaku skills, where he was moving so fast they had to slow the camera to see what he was doing

thanks for yet another great vid. Unfortunately, I will have to put this video on the shelf until I possess the skills and coordination to even attempt such a strumming technique.

I'm taking this one slowly. So far I almost have the thumb part down. :(

haha well when I first learned schizo snowflakes I just used a four finger roll. It sounds almost as good because its only 1 finger less.

also when I originally learned some kind of 5 finger roll I did the thumb last. so I would come down with all my fingers pinky first and the thumb comes after the index. Aldrine's way is tricky and I'm still working on it. :p

I think I'm doing it wrong... my roll sounds like a horse gallop.
