Steve Smith Pathways of Motion 1

This first pack explains and demonstrates the four grips.

The Pathways of Motion series from drumming legend Steve Smith provides a complete overview and approach to matched grip drumset technique. These concepts are based around Steve’s current use and analysis of matched grip, presenting a wealth of information about hand technique that also covers rudiments, musical phrasing, and much more. Steve identifies and demonstrates four distinct grips; each grip is thoroughly explored in its basic motions on the snare drum, and then translated to drumset applications and phrases. Later packs in the series apply these techniques with challenging and fun rudimental phrases that also build phrasing ideas, vocabulary, and chops.

This first pack explains and demonstrates the four grips.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  • Symmetrical vs. Asymmetrical Grip
  • Matched Grip Hand Positions: Grip 1
  • Grip 1: Triplets
  • Matched Grip Hand Positions: Grip 2
  • Matched Grip Hand Positions: Grip 3
  • Matched Grip Hand Positions: Grip 4
