Losing My Sticks While Playing

by hans

When i play for awhile my hands arms begin to hurt a little and in the middle of a song I drop a stick or it slips out of my hand--almost like they become weak. What do I do about it?.
thanks hans

ANSWER

If you have not been playing long, you may just need to build your strength, but it sounds like you may be playing too hard or holding your sticks incorrectly.

Be sure that your palms are facing down and not to the side. Your thumb should NOT be facing up.
This puts too much pressure on your thumb joint,
especially when playing hard.
