Default Re: Double Bass Left Foot Strength

I think maybe you both are arguing interpretations of the same thing?

George Kolias says that when increasing speed at some point you will have to adopt the ankle motion, which from what I can tell is like playing heels down but with your heel not actually resting on anything, sort of floating just above, which means the ankle will travel forward on the down stroke and backward on the rebound - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMGqhYVwOJA

Regarding left foot strength, George Kolias also says that he feels your main foot should be dominant and the other a follower - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_JICNeDs88
