A lifetime of practice material.

Eighth Note Stick-Butt Exercise
The trick when learning to back stick is to have a back sticking sound that is as consistent and as close to a regular tap as possible. Also, strive to throw the stick "straight" back as it looks cleaner and has a more dramatic visual effect.
