Default Re: Arrghhh....damaged ankles and no drumming.

Sorry to read of your problem don't lose heart I felt the same once. In 1996 I busted my right ankle into fragments following my Honda 1000 through a ditch. As a result its got very limited flexion - less than half what my normal left ankle can do. Thought I'd never play the Immigrant Song again! But I adapted in the end - now I play heel up all the time, at the mid point of the pedal so less movement needed. Took a lot of time (couple of years actually) to redevelop my technique but now can play single as well as ever, although not as powerfully. Mic'ing usually sorts that out! Double is harder - I guess I should mangle the left ankle to balance up!

Yours in encouragement

Richard
