UP STROKE ...
Stroke is necessary
to increase speed while remaining relaxed.
Moeller's definition of the Up Stroke can be found clearly stated in his book (page 12).
"The descriptive name, UP STROKE , comes to it naturally. It consists of tapping the drum while the hand is rising"

* The term up stroke refers to the body's movement (hand & arm) and not the stick!
