From the zone: left hand developer

 Here's a cool little exercise from a great drummer from Los Angeles, Sinclair Lott:  

You can see what's happening there— a table of time with a RLL sticking, with accents on the downbeats. Which makes your left hand do some stuff. Very elegant. 

Check out Sinclair's YouTube channel, which has some lovely playing, and cymbal demos. And get his latest record here. Buy people's records. 

Send in your FROM THE ZONE items— any of your handwritten stuff. It doesn't have to be finished, or good, or anything. I just like seeing what people scribble out in the wood shed because it wasn't in any of the books, and they needed it. Take a picture with your phone and send it.
