you stole the words right out of my mouth :wink:youngdrummer":26ty9v50 said:Well, definitely learn all of your rudiments with your feet. After that, do like Danny Carey, and learn snare drum solos with your feet. I think it would be wise to treat double bass playing just like you do with your hands. For most drummers, you don't start out playing grooves on the drums, you learn the hand technique. In my opinion, learning the technique behind the device should be done before you implement it into your grooves.
