Double Bass (ep1)

Steady 16th Notes

Most commonly used in hard rock and metal, double bass drumming has actually been a very popular means of getting more speed, power, and sound out of the kick drum. And while many players today may start with a double bass kit or a double bass pedal, most (like myself), already have a few years behind a single pedal kit before venturing into this double footed realm. 

As with any new technique and musician idea, it is best to start slowly, take your time learning the patterns, exercises, and of course, the music that this style of drumming is most appropriate for and follow along as Felipe shows you the first of 3 double bass lessons that will be sure to get your feet flying in no time!
