    I learned a lot by watching their videos and seeing them live. :agreed:


    Honestly, my technique depends on what type of rhythm I'm playing. It's kinda weird to use the exact same pattern of strokes when playing different types of gallops. To me, at least. Sometimes it's U-U-D, D-U-D, D-D-U, just whatever fits. Don't try to constrain yourself to just one pattern. Mix it up a little.
