Doublebassslide

Heey all, I've recently watched alot of video's of drummers who explain different types of double bass techniques. From George Kollias's extreme fast single stroke technique via Derek Roddy's also extreme fast flatfoot technique to Tim Waterson's crazyf*cking double's with the heel/toe method. BUT I couldn't find one single video of someone playing doubles with the slide technique, where you get two strokes with one "slide"on the pedal. Does anyone know anyone using this technique in order to play fast double stroke rolls on the bassdrum? I'm currently working on it, but I would really like to see it on video from a pro to really see the movement. Hope someone can help out.

Thanks!!

Jeff Porcaro used that.
At the end of the first video and the beginning of the 2nd video

Thanks dude, that is indeed the technique I was talking about, but I see now that I didn't explain my question clear enough.

What I'm actually looking for is a movie of someone, who plays that technique with BOTH feet in order to play a really fast double bassroll.

Like RRLLRRLLRRLLRRLLRRLL using that slide technique. I think I know what it's gonna look like, but I just still would like to see someone pull that off.

I've noticed today that it does work, if i can get the balance right and stuff. And pratice a few months/years :p

Not sure if this is the technique that you're looking for, but here's a somewhat old video of Virgil Donati demonstrating double stroked double bass at 190bpm.

Heey thanks everyone for the cool response. I think the video of Donati is the one I ment. Although i'm not really surprised that he's the one showing it :p Pretty cool to actually see him work both pedals like that! Give me hope to carry on, haha

Thanks!!
