Can you guys do this trick ???

Ok, the texts are in Dutch but they are not important. The opposite circular hand movement is what counts.

Enjoy

ps music is a French song called "PADAM" sung by Edith Piaf (this is for you tribdog)

I can do it, if I can keep my fingers out of my ears with that singing going on.

I swear, I try to start it, but my brain won't let my fingers do it. For a split second I will think I am doing it, but then realize both fingers are going the same way.. aargh!!

There's a whole category of these tricks. Here's another good one:

Hold your two fists out in front of you. On your left hand, stick out your pinky finger, and on your right hand, stick out your thumb. So, you would see:

-O -O

(where O denotes your fist, and - denotes a digit)

Then, you switch: on your left hand, stick out your thumb, and on your right hand your pinky:

O- O-

and then alternate back and forth.

-O -O
O- O-
-O -O
O- O-

the secret is to do one revolution at a time then pause. reduce the length of the pause as you get better. It also helps if you stand on one foot and close the opposite eye and whistle. (I made that up cause it makes me laugh to think someone might try it)

I can do it, but then again I can play guitar and drums (through not at the same time) and have a pretty good degree of hand independence. If you can play well-timed paradiddles across a span of drums, cymbals, you know what I mean.

I too play drums, ive played for something like 8 years but still struggled to do this although it seems increadibly easy watching it, too bad it isnt...

My trick is to make sure that my fingers are going in opposite directions at the top of the loop. The rest takes care of itself.
