Another rim stroke is the rim-tap or cross-stick. Like its name implies, this is a quiet stroke used in jazz, Latin music, and ballads. With this stroke, you turn your stick around, place the tip against the drum head close to the rim, and pivot the stick up to strike the drum. With the tip pressed in the drum, you drive the bottom end of the stick into the opposite rim. Many people rest their left hand on the head while they hold the stick. Doing so helps dampen the overtone when the stick hits the rim.
