Default Re: Double Bass Left Foot Strength

Set a metronome to 100 bmp to start with and just using your double pedal. With your left foot play 16th notes or semi-quavers if your traditional like me, and with your right foot play 4th notes or crotchets. Do this every day until your leg is in excruciating pain and then do 15 more minuets on top and push through the pain. alternate this exercise between both feet but focusing on your week foot. once you have your feet at equal levels just do loads of single stroke rolls with your feet. By the way this exercise goes for your hands as well.
