Anyone have suggestions on a good instructional video for developing double bass technique. I am looking for something that focuses on development of odd patterns (flams, triplets, paradiddles etc.) as opposed to just straight ahead speed.

It sounds to me like you should just practice rudiments with your feet. I don't own a double bass pedal, but if I did own one, that's what I'd do with it.

Sorry I didn't look for a video, if it's out there, youtube will probably have it.
