I'm new and Know nothing but don't wish to repeat the mistakes of the past, I taught myself piano...all wrong.
With four mallets it seems the evolution is Traditional grip to Burton Grip To Musser to Stevens? So why should the vibraphone be different?
What is it that the Stevens grip lack? What about that technique doesn't fit the vibe mastery thing.
I hope my instrument arrives soon, I'm tied of banging my table and afraid the old Kurzweil won't live much longer if I keep playing it with mallets.
