Alan Kahn hits to Michael Jackson

Can't say I enjoy the music, BUT that isn't the point.

Alan has picked out a song with a very strong and noticeable beat. This is a great selection for someone who is looking to learn how to hit the speed bag to music.

If anyone else has any good resources for learning trapping, please let me know!

All the best in your training,
