A couple of months ago I broke a finger of my right hand and when the doctor wrapped my arm with paster I knew that I won´t be able to play for at least two months…
But instead of feeling depressed I took the chance to build up my weak hand practicing every day with my pad. After two weeks I improved a lot my control and I began to play one-handed with an open position.
A friend of mine suggested me to play Def Leppard covers and I did it to prove we all can play with just one hand as Rick Allen does.
I hope to motivate other crippled drummers to keep playing and developing skills no matter what limb is useless.
Now I have my hand 100% recovered and I feel a good balance between both hands due this 6 week intensive left hand marathon!
