The most important piece of advice it this:  Don't stop 'till you get it.
Check out ta0's videos, Spintastic's videos, and this one:

I forgot about this video, thanks for posting it Neff
I been trying to learn drumbeat but everytime I pull up the sting gets caught on the tip, after watching this video I think im taking to long to pull, the trompo is rotating once before I get to pull on the string
do I have to do it so quick, with no time to set up?

On roller coaster, pretend you are wrapping the string around the tip instead of whipping it to try to catch it.

As for drumbeat pplgrande, what helped me, is starting your launch when the top is still coming around, because the tug upwards will cause the top to rotate to whole way. Plus the string should be not as wound

PPL: When the top is spinning slowly, pull up when the point is at 3:00.
