Note that the twist drum sticks akin to twisting a stick in karate. Feints drum sticks can be made by using two fingers, and with the help of four. Equally spectacular looks clockwise rotation and in the opposite direction. 2-3 years regular drumming this skill appears by itself. Sometimes it can be worked out, especially with this time.
Put the stick between your index and middle fingers perpendicular to the palm of your hand and try to rotate it. Imagine holding a propeller. During the unwinding of the stick should always stay just between the index and middle fingers. Beginning training can help the other fingers, but the wand will start to spin in your hand easily and naturally, as if without your help.
Please note that it is not necessary to rotate the stick as a paddle - first one end, then the other. Try to keep your arm immobile, moving only two working fingers.
Note that the fingers should be kept straight, allowed only a slight bend in the phalanx.
