running out of breath by moving 2 fingers?
posted
And I thought I had a craptastic stamina

I was going to say alternate is less stamina since it's easier to move fingers at half the speed as singletap, but reading the OP, I don't know anymore.

Maybe do some cardio or something

Single-tapping on jumps is pretty accurate, but you might struggle on single-tapping high BPMs (depending on your single-tap limit) in which alternating is better for that. The problem with alternating is that you might not be as accurate as single-tapping.

Just my opinion...

Try single tapping on one finger, switching to the other when your finger gets tired. also, try not to press so hard and relax your fingers. Many times i get tired because i'm tapping too hard / my muscles are too tense.

Honestly, I think choosing to alternate on BPMs you can't singletap is like really lame.
I don't mean to offend anyone, but I decided for myself that alternating because of too high speed would be equal to giving up.

Ok. Play Cider with singletap.

why does it matter as long as you're hitting the circles

I thought all the pros alternated, like, no matter what kind of patterns they played ;_;

meh, I'm having troubles alternating between singletapping and alternating, so I'll just stick to alternating

That's exactly what I'm practicing.

Alternating simply doesn't satisfy me. It feels like I'm cheating. Dunno why.

It is all opinion really. I come from a background in rudimental drumming background, and alternating seems best for me (it is what the rhythms "feel like" in my mind). I will double tap stacked notes however, as I interpret them as doubles (diddles), also, some patterns seem like they should be played like certain rudiments (paradiddles for example). I think to someone without much drumming background, it would be much easier to play eighth note streams and jumps as single taps because you don't have to do any extra mental processing to figure out what finger you will wind up on ect. Also, I have noticed that mechanically, my streams were not even naturally (my middle finger actuates too soon). So I had to adjust that. If you single tap, you don't have to adjust as much.

That being said, I have been fooling around with single tapping things, It seems stressful to me, but perhaps better on jumps.

TL;DR -It is all opinion really. Alternating and rudimental play makes sense to me, but might be easier to learn single tapping from scratch.

I personally suggest you single tap. I single tap myself because I find alternating so much of a challenge, though it's more accurate. Single tapping can get you exhausted & will probably mess up your fingers but that's just coming from personal experiences. I think alternating is better if you're not that great at single tapping & single tapping is better if you're a fast player overall.

Also, Cider is very good for single tapping warm up (or at least I think so). Challenging but it's worth it. single tapping > alternating, imo.

Single tap... When you can single tap 320 bpm and everyone is all like "AMG DAT IS IMPUZIBLE" it's pretty funny.

145 bpm 1/4s are fast, but it's not that hard to achieve if you practice single tapping speed.

I love 2013.

There are no longer "140bpm streams"
There is only "280bpm jumps"

Well, yes. The players improve. And they will do that forever. Stuff that seemed impossible a few years ago is now child's play for the pros.
Which is why we should start to change our mapping as well. Pro's are getting bored lately, so they DT Maps like Wahrheit, they need new challenges.
