What is Crazy Hands?

Crazy Hands, is a series of books written by D. Mark Agostinelli.  The books that are in this series, are books that may dedicate to a specific subject such as Flams, Drags, or even Cheeses.  But adds another twist to it by also incorporating crazy hand techniques that are crazy hand patterns to add more of a challenge in learning the drums or percussion.

Instead of playing what you read as R – L – R – L -R – L – R – L – R – L – R – L etc.   It may be like R – L – L – L – R – R – L – L – R – L – R – R etc.

This adds a level of difficulty that challenges the player.  It will do things like force the player to do over-hand and under-hand combinations if it is a drum set book.  Or if it is a snare drum book it will help the player develop a “focus” point; meaning another thing to worry about!  Which is important, because that kind of training is highly needed for a drummer / percussionist.

“Juggling multiple things while playing, is what it’s all about! You need to keep all 4 limbs working and think about 5 – 10 things while playing!  Then be able to make a phone call, eat a pizza, count, read ahead, and then remember to actually breathe at the same time!  That’s how you get good!”   – D. Mark Agostinelli – What he used to say to students.
