Brief brush thing....

here's a vid of me explaining 3 different ways to get accents while playing circles and staying on the drum head. I forgot to mention that the amount of brush surface touching the head while playing makes a huge difference in the sound and feel. Elvin's rough, sort 0f raw sound comes from the fact that he used all of the brush surface on the head. Use less of the brush and you can get a more transparent, almost gentile, sound. I've heard people like Peter Erskine use this very effectively.

Okay here's the vid......
