tsukeshime bachi (usually smaller diameter, softer "hou" wood)
nagado bachi (usually larger diameter, harder "kashi" wood)
- next week, small group?
Final vid prep
- starting point comments review (Oct 19)
-- Alex: neck tension, path of strike allows 100% energy
-- Jess: L grip more relaxed for increased bachi snap
-- Bevin: Timing of L upstroke determined by timing of hit rather than tempo
-- Jalynn: L strike weak in "doro"
-- Sam: L wrist tension interferes with whip of bachi
-- Michelle: L "easing down" during 8th notes
-- Young: tension in arm, upper body causes shake at impact
