This must be the 10th time I link to this video when the subject is trad grip,
but it does (from 1:28 to 2:20) showcase the meanest, most powerful trad grip left hand out there.
Some good close ups too for inspiration and guidance.
Not a trad grip question, but I've been working on snare drum stuff a whole lot lately. Next thing I need to work on are rudimental flam combinations, like the ones from 1:36 to 1:46 in this clip. Any suggestions for written material, YouTube examples, etc.?
I uploaded a (much) simpler video some 5 years ago. Basically for every shift from right to left
and vice versa, you flam the note. You can do this with any of the rudiments.
Virgil's incorporation of flams is at a ridiculous level. Mine are not, but may give you some ideas of your own.
