    It happens that way. You just wake up one day and you're suddenly better at it. Practice pays off!

    I do have to say that I'm getting faster but I can only do it for a short time, is that normal? Also, when you get faster does your hold on the sticks change? I read somewhere that you will only be holding the stick between your index finger and your thumb with the other 4 fingers kind of "out of the way"? Am I making sense? I also read somewhere that the sticks will kind of "bounce" when you get faster, is this true? Sorry for rambling........

    yes, i understand what you are saying. yes it is true. At first, watching dvd's on technique etc, I thought how the do they hold the sticks like that and still control them. well i understand now! the sticks began to feel the most comfortable after a couple of years and every day when i picked the sticks up, they just kept getting smoother and more comfortable and they still do three years into it.
