videos from former Morello students on the "proper" way to use SC and
employing this instruction to the tee. One of the older cats that goes
by "ChickWebb"--religiously works through SC and has hour plus vids
talking to students mentioned he was a former Adler student who bailed
because he didn't care for it.
Hmmm....what exactly is the Adler method?
Then...I saw a video from a former Adler student and saw the difference...
grip is very different, use if wrists, no Moeller, some exercises that many
would find "controversial" to build muscles.
Bottom line...I tried some of this and my control, speed took off!
The last time I remember something like this was when I was a kid and my doubles
went from wrist to bounce...ahhh moment of bliss!
SO...not a lot out there on Henry Adler...anyone have first-hand experience with this
and can go into depth the difference between Stone and Henry? The "guy" today
who seems to carry his torch is Ted McKenzie--like him or not, but the commentary
is he plays like a Buddy-clone...no denying his chops tho...how he plays is on him,
but his chops from the Adler method.
I picked up his workout book and it is all telescopic wire brushes...a specific wrist movement;
Hand speed is developed by quickly moving the wrists to and from the four natural rebound positions:
(1) the down position, (2) the full stroke, (3) half stroke and (4) the1/4 stroke -all within a very slow
tempo. The student carefully monitors consistent hand positions and wrist turns until proper technique
