My playing doesn't change much. I don't do anything different with my hands, and I have always done doubles with my right foot whether on a single or a double pedal. The double is usually used for fills and quick triplet figures with the toms. I'm maybe missing two notes of every seven without a slave pedal. I don't do doubles with my left foot, usually only singles, which leads to a double-single sort of shuddering triplet with the feet, or a dotted note in the middle of four sixteenths, if I time it correctly; otherwise I do three or four single strokes for triples and sixteenths or thirty-seconds.
