Default Re: Double Bass Left Foot Strength

I posted this in a recent thread about a weak left hand, but I'm using this same method for double bass too, and it's working well: Get a copy of "Stick Control" , go through the book and circle all the exercises that have more lefts than rights. Practice these with a metronome for about 3 mins each. Add a ride cymbal and a back beat too. I give some time every day to either my left foot or my left hand with this, sometimes I do both in one day.

The sections of the book that I'm using for double bass are the single beat combinations, triplets, and short roll progressions. It's been working well for my left hand and my double bass. I'm definately going to continue doing it.
