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. Rather than simply listing exercises in musical notation, this book actually explains, in detail, how double bass works at the most basic level including: pedal setup, drum kit arrangement, single stroke techniques, double stroke techniques, drum head selection, tuning, drumming anatomy, and more. 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. Working through a volume of double bass excercises is good, but practicing them correctly and efficiently will accelerate your learning curve. 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. Over 25 pictures, diagrams, and musical examples are included to augment the text.
