Here is a sneak preview from the soon to be released Secrets of Pro Disc Freestyle Volume 2.
Z Weyand and I each had our personal missions on this new DVD. It was my goal to include a clear and easy to follow section defining and demonstrating consecutivity on our 2nd DVD. Here it is at last.
In my opinion, Consecutivity is the most powerful technique there is to improve your overall freestyle game. But a lot of players are confused about what is really consecutive. I think the reason it has been misunderstood is that the word itself doesn’t describe what one should focus on.
That’s why Z and I decided to rename this technique CONNECTIVITY. The technique focuses on connecting moves together. It focuses on linking moves together without breaking up your combo with the basic “the” nail delay or with any other breaks in flow such as long pauses or hesitations. A player should focus on connecting the moves, the combos, the co-ops. Hence the term Connectivity.
Anyway, check out the segment. This video is just the beginning of what can be said of Connectivity. There will be more to come in in the future. Also Arthur Coddington’s article The Year of Consecutivity is a great description as well.
I’ve gotten quite a few requests to post this song. I’ve been putting it off, but here it is. It’s a song I wrote about Freestyle Frisbee. About jamming. Pipo Lopez and I did our routine to this song at Worlds in Berlin. This is the full band version. I’m the band with my guitar, voice, keyboard and Pro Tools set-up. The harmonica solo is played by Laszlo Csizy.
Step into the Jam.
“Supercool (Step into the Jam)”
Lyrics & Music by Dave Lewis copyright 2006.
I have a question for you. I have never seen you, but I have heard about you, so I am sure you exist. You may have an answer to my problem.
I was jamming today and came upon a quandry. The jam with Arthur Coddington and Pat Marron was going well. We were passing the disc frequently and setting up a nice flow within the rhythm of the jam. Then Pat threw me a throw with the most unbelievable zzz’s where upon I flipped out!! I lost all sense of connection to the jam and lost all self control. I thought “I must keep these ZZZ’s to myself!! No one else can have these zzz’s!”
A list of all of the moves I could possibly do went through my head all at once. I did a very long combo. When I ran out of the zzz’s I kept brushing and rolling, kicking and rolling. If it were not for running out of grass and field I would have kept going for a lot longer. When I turned around, Arthur was taking a nap and Pat was making a cell phone call.
How can I control my selfish craving to keep all of the zzz’s to myself.
