  • Drum Signals

    I notice that some drum groups use hand signals.
    That is something new. years ago the singers signaled with the drum.
    Examples:
    What everyone calls honor beats is just a signal that the tempo will change to a faster beat.( lately some groups hit 'honor beats' on every chorus)
    Whoever wants to lead a song - hits the drum once.
    Three quick beats near the end is a signal for the women to finish the song.
    I can't remember, omakiya po!, i think it was two beat was for the announcer to come to the drum ( that was before they sat up high in the announcers stand, ha,ha)
    Any oldtimers remember any more?
