Default Re: THE HEEL TOE THREAD

Come on guys, this is a neat trick, but it does not sound natural. You are just bouncing off the heel pressure and rebounding with the toesie woesies. The natural bass resonance is missing due to the fact that the front head is tensioned when its hit the second time. No wonder why the bass is way muffled with a pillow or other tricks so the hits don't sound different. Try this with a bass drum with no muffling and you will see what I mean.No different from that one handed roll trick off the rim. Make the snare quieter and you will hear the damn rim shot.

A real drummer does not have to impress with tricks.
Just play the dammed thing the best you can with out the tricks then you will be impressive.
