nobody really needs to play the snare with your foot. its pretty much a dumb idea altogether.

It leaves your hands free to do other things possibly?

I know someone who would love to do this, hes a great multi tasker. He drums, sings, and plays keyboard, at the same time!

Great post, very productive. I think it's a great idea and the perfect solution to my problem (playing guitar or keyboard while keeping a beat going.)
You go ahead and do what "everyone else" does shanemunzert.
