Re: heel-toe technique
well here we go again, there is alot of stuff out there on heel toe, if you got $$$ or you can surf around for threads or visit Tim Waterson's web site. I will try and help, heel toe to me means; complete balance while sitting in front of your kit. Find a compfortable position on your pedals and start to rock your foot heal to toe. These movements are very small, not lifting the feet to far from the pedals. Start slow, use metronome ALWAYS just try to find the teeder todder in the pedals if you know what i mean, "the sweet spot" if you are doing it correctly you will not be using alot of energy. This will take a while to develop but keep doing it every day and look around for double bass drummers and watch CLOSELY to what the feet are doing!
Sleep on drums, when you wake up you dont need to go anywhere!
