Well, a practise pad is better in my opinion because, if you have people in your house or nextdoor neihbours that will get annoyed easily, the practise pad is quiet and you can practise with one almost anywhere. For techniques to start with, first it's a good idea to start out holding your sticks correctly. There's an easy way to know if you're holding your sticks the propper way. Pick up your sticks, and hold them the normal way you're used to. Then, ask yourself "What time is it?". Turn your rist to the point where you could read the face of a wrist watch easily, and try and hold your rist that way, when you play. From there, theres an exersize called 1 to 10. This is where you do 5 single strokes in each hand, then move up to 5 double strokes, then 5 triplets, and etc etc until you get to 10 shots in each hand, then make your way back down to one.
Hope I helped.

Like others said,a practicepad is your best way to learn. Start out slow and build your speed up slowly.You will be amazed of how much control you will have.

Here you go, check this first:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/X-rGsGZTlso&amp;ap=%2526fmt%3D18&amp;rel=0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/X-rGsGZTlso&amp;ap=%2526fmt%3D18&amp;rel=0</a>


and when you are fine repeating all you see on the video, continue to this topic:

Hope that helps.
