Double Bass Drumming Explained is the definitive guide for how to play bass drum with both feet. This is not just another method book stuffed with endless beats and fills.

An indispensable companion to any double bass practice routine, this book is the missing first chapter to all the other double bass workbooks available today. If you want to learn to play double bass or refine your current approach, look no further for the most in-depth discussion of both basic information and higher level concepts.

Double bass Drumming Explained will give you the inside knowledge to supercharge your practicing by insuring that you are playing double bass in a way that makes sense and gets results in the realms of speed, power, and accuracy. In this book you will learn to play such techniques as: heel-up, heel-down, floating or flatfoot, heel-toe, slide, and swivel, which means you will be equipped to play double bass in any given situation at any tempo and at any volume.
