Re: So should you never bounce doubles?

Personally, the same thing happens to me and watching the rest of JoJo's DVD, there's a section near the end when he talks specifically on doubles speed. He does the same thing you described, altough...

Re: So should you never bounce doubles?

JoJo explains two different techniques for executing doubles, in his first DVD:

1) execute a full stroke and then just let the stick bounce to get a second stroke, without involving the finger (at...

Re: question for double bass players

Glad to hear that I've at least understood what your problem is :)

I don't know if this can help, but at least you can give it a try to get used to the feeling... start by doing a single stroke...

Re: question for double bass players

Maybe it's because you get used to do a roll with both your feet. You said that you're totally relaxed and that you're letting the pedals do the work, this is great. I would try to practice straigth...

Re: Knee pain from double pedals

Just to add something on what everybody has already said: are you trying to swiveling, in some way? Swiveling with improper form will cause pain and injury in the knees area.

Re: Why does my right hand get so fatigued?

It may be a tons of things... improper technique, unnecessary tension, hand's health problem (let's hope not) or maybe just what you've already said: you're coming from many years of not playing,...

Re: Reprogramming foot motion - help

Yup, this.

For the sake of clarity, I was talking about straight 16th with one foot from 60-80/90 bpm range, since you told it was mainly a right foot problem only.

Re: Reprogramming foot motion - help

Yeah, because leg/leg+ankle motion happens in that range. From 90/95 bpm and up, i start using ankle and i think it's pretty normal. It has worked for me, I use different motions for different speeds...

Re: Reprogramming foot motion - help

This happened to me as well. What i did was the exact same thing that you're already doing, continuos 16th at 60 through 80 bpm range, focusing on using the leg and not the ankle. I think you're...

Re: Tips for Moving To Traditional Grip

This. I was goin' to recommend that DVD too, but I did so many times that someone may start to think JoJo pays me to promote his DVDs :D

Re: Tips for Moving To Traditional Grip

As others and yourself said... get a good teacher! :) Not using techniques correctly can lead to injuries.

Just a little tip: your ring finger is there just to support the stick from underneath,...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

I totally agree with this one.

IMHO having the beater too close to the head is a big mistake, since the pedal does not swing and by doing so, you kill the pedal's rebound.



This is true,...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

This thread has become a war on a kind of music lol

Ok, now that is clear where your problem is (around 120 bpm) i think you're definitely correct when you say you'd be using full leg motion. Do...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Max spring tension help to get a better swing from the pedals and since the pedals are always in a "ready" state it's actually much more easier to go fast. This is the advice I got from Kollias,...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Hard and quality work, perseverance and good technique will yield results in everything :)

Re: 16th notes on single kick pedal

Yeah, both his DVDs are mind-blowing. I played double-bass for almost 8 years, when I bought his latest DVD I was kind of frustrated. I had to start back from zero, to compensate years of bad...

Re: Double Kick Practice Tips!

If you're really serious into double kick and want to spend times practising it, I highly suggest you to start looking at heel down and heel up techniques. When you're pretty confident, start to mix...

JoJo's new DVD has everything you need to know. There are different techniques to achieve what you want (i.e. flat foot)

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

For some techniques (ie: flat foot) the rebound is essential. If you bury the beater it's not going to work.

In general, I wonder if there's some negative effect on burying the beater... does the...

it may seems quite obvious, but it's better to play relaxed and focus on clearness and precision than speed. Who cares about your fellow drummers? :)

Re: Weird problem (double bass pattern)

Re: Weird problem (double bass pattern)

Ankle motion is much more difficult to control than leg motion. I don't think that practice it at a very slow tempo will help you, since this is a motion that naturally occurs at fast tempo. You can...
