Posted:This is a tutorial series on how linear extensions can be used to break down everything from flowers to polyrhythm hybrids and third-order motions. The lesson get broken down with the aid of helpful computer graphics that overlay visualization tools as well as simulations of the tricks themselves. Please take a gander and leave me some feedback!

Posted:Really awesome videos Drex and its clear the amount of time and effort that was spent on them!

If i was to do them in sequence im only on the 3rd video i think, the one where you are explaining horizontal linear extensions and i am still having a few problems getting it, Im sure it will just come with practice but i can extend from the center to my right (im right dominant so that makes sense) but boy its a shocker the other way! my hands also seem to noticeably flap up and down too whilst i do it frown this and Zan's method of taking a split time butterfly and trying to increase the motion left to right are the only ways i have seen to learn it properly. Im sure i will get it through time but does anyone else have any hints?

Beginners do it until they can get it right, experts do it until they can't get it wrong.
