    You've got it right: he's actually not moving his hands at all because he instills fear in the drums. So, as he makes the drums tremble in fear, he just holds the sticks close and takes advantage.

    He’s incorporating a controlled nervous twitch, basically. Tighten up certain muscles just right and the nerves just make them buzz. He’s perfected control of that. Awesome.

    I'm not even a drummer, but your content is very entertaining. Mr Riccardo is a beast!

    Soon this dude is gonna play so fast he can just play notes with his drums

  • Gabriel Santamaria

    We need this recorded at 120fps and replayed on a 120hz monitor to even attempt to follow, it’s all just motion blur at this framerate, so impressive

    This guy, El Estepario and Samus need to all collab and make the most technical song in the world

    Man, I had the fastest hands in the drumline in high school (and we had a good drumline), but holy hot damn, Batman, this guy's got at least 50% more speed and 400% more stamina than I ever had... Props to him. I know that took a lot of time and effort and good mentoring to get to where he is, and it's incredible to see people who are THAT good at a particular skill.

    If you properly tense the muscle group responsible for the hand, it will start to vibrate - you can control the frequency by gentle movement. He probably practiced it every day for many months. I practiced, because in some pc games you have to mash one key quite quickly - a useful trick

    Join a band, write a couple songs that involve this type of speed ... now that's job security. That band literally cannot exist without you anymore.

    He is using the vibrations that forms the world we live in to vibrate the sticks he is holding in a perfect symbiosis.

    Dude, in the absolute best way possible, I'm not a drum guy, not remotely interested in who can drum how and you just entertained the everliving crap out of me! Loved seeing your love of awesome technique. God bless you, man! 🥁

    Physiologically - I think he has to turn off his muscles faster than most humans in order to get that fast. It's just not the muscle contraction, it's the relaxation phase that has to be so so so fast. That was very enjoyable to watch you react!

    He's amazing and you are extremely honest about giving him respect that he deserves. Thank you!

    Holy shit!!! This guy is an alien from another drum world sent here to share with us the extra terrestrial drum techniques of another planet.

    I was always impressed with Ian Paice of Deep Purple fame he has really fast hands his left hand was off the charts, this guy is obviously very impressive.
