bridgemen left handed 1/16ths.......

Post by asummers » Mon Mar 28, 2005 8:10 pm

Someone please verify for me that Bridgemen actually did all left handed 1/16ths in Black Market Juggler, while running the roto-toms......Jeff Mackay where are you?
I posted the video clip at a drum forum and this one person swears they are not playing straight 1/16ths, she claims they are split.....please say they're not!!

Yes they are playing straight 1/16ths on the left hand while playing the running roto toms... The way it was done...Is you play 4 beats with your thumb,then 4 beats with your index finger...This way your wrist didn't get tired... Try it...We stared practicing in 79...then they used it in 80 for the first time....As you know, history was made...

You are correct about the index finger and the thumb, but we practiced it all winter in 1984 (though we didn't have it in the show) 2 beats per finger, not 4
And thats how it was done in 83 also!
But I could be wrong about how it was done in 1980 !

Most of the descriptions are close. It was played as 2 16ths on the Index finger then 2 16ths on the thumb. Tommy Igoe wrote a really good description but I can't find where it is posted. I don't know why there was ever a debate. Just ask Dennis!!

Where did you post the video?????

Hi Jeff..........

Finally found a link to the clip.
It used to be on Bridgemen's site but is no longer there, I think they replaced it with some Seneca Optimists clips....... :shock:
