The most efficient way to strike the kick drum is to let the beater rebound off the head. Anything else is just a derivation from or a combination of heel up and heel down motions. It seems these "exotic" techniques will develop and evolve all by themselves if you just keep on practicing both heel up and heel down and trying to go past your limits.

That practicing thing is correct. If you don't get something, practice. Actually most of my hand skill has came behind TV... Movie lasts for 2 h, I practice about 1.45h. Most important is that don't get sloppy behind TV..That's why I never remember what movie is about, lol.

Derek, here's a question I've always wondered. See I can reach speeds like 200bpm pretty easily, but obviously that wasn't always the case. I was just wondering what speeds do you get to before you really start to struggle? And do you find it hard to play your stuff now or has it become easy over the years, or are you trying hard?

Probably a silly question, but thanks anyway.

Well, right now...I top out somewhere around 230-240. I use to be able to hit 250-255 regularly but, I don't play Death Metal 260 days a year anymore. That type of physical effort requires maintenance. Pushing yourself will always make you struggle...it's to what extent are you struggling that's important.
It definately has gotten easier for me over the years.
Cheers.

Ah, the HHX Groove Ride. I love that cymbal.
I've never been the type of drummer who likes these pingy, "manhole cover" ride cymbals that most "metal" drummers use. I like a sound like Tony W, or Jack D. I fuse that sound into my metal playing simply to separate myself from all the other metal drummers who have the same cymbal sound.
The Groove Ride is good because it can cover a wide variety of genres. this is good because I play gigs doing anything from Blues to Extreme metal. I don't like to change gear. I like to play what I play and that's that! LOL. I'm too forgetful to remember which ride to take to a gig.
I wouldn't say it's the best ride for "metal" but it's the best ride for "everything".
D.

Oh yea, I also use a single piece of moongel on the Groove Ride. It dries it up just slightly enough to bring out the definition.
Cheers.

Thanks a lot Derek, I always wondered about that. Yeah, my band split up recently and I understand what you mean about the maintenance, does that not bother you though?

Oh and the solo from the clinic rocks, well done man!

Oh, and do you use moongel on any of your drums? I do live but I take it off for recordings because it gives a slappy sound sometimes in the mix.

i gotta say derek that i am blown away by the fact that you can run on the pedals at like 240. i have always struggled with high speeds when it comes to double bass.

Thanks for the kind comments.
It's just a matter of how much time you spend doing it. That's the key.
It wasn't always perfect for me. I was at a place that EVERYONE of you... are in now.
It's just about doing it as much as you can and and letting go of the idea of "gaining speed".
It will come but it might show itself in way you aren't expecting...like practicing other things.
Cheers.

Derek, you have 2 brains, right? One for the feet and one for the hands, 'cuz there is NO friggin' way that one brain can take care of both your hands and feet! =)
btw, I love the 3/2 footpattern in I Monarch, I play it very often but with my hands instead, since I don't have a cable hat on my right...
...yet =)

Hi Derek,

I bought your book yesterday; it was sitting in the guitar section of my local music store! I haven't had a chance to try out any of the exercises yet but I really enjoyed what you had to say and the production and design of the book is outstanding!

What do you make of this? http://youtube.com/watch?v=CVo7qxDhgoM

I somewhat trust Batdorf, but one can never tell. It doesn't seem like he's floating, but I really don't know what to make of this. Do you think he's actually going 290? I personally believe he''s going about 260 and is floating. I'm not sure though.

I'd also like to take the time to tell you how much I admire your drumming skills. You should be proud of your ability to play so well.

Thank you.

In addition to MONSTER chops, he's got the most incredible independence I've EVER seen. Multiple polyrythms between hands and feet. I never understood why any drummer needed 5 pedals on each side of the snare . . . until I saw him show me what to do with them.

In addition to that, he absolutely kills rock, funk, jazz, latin, anything. Put this guy in with an acoustic jazz trio, no problem. Latin/Funk, piece of cake. He does it all.
as much respect as i have for this guy as a metal drummer, i have to disagree. i saw him on video playing in a blues/jazz band and to say the least he did not swing. he may have been schooled enough to be playing a swing pattern, but the feel was just way too straight. this happens though with a lot of technically proficient players. see neil peart on the Burning for Buddy cd.

Hey man, no way is that singles, he's using heel-toe. If he was really doing singles, he'd have a close up on his feet to prove it.

It's as bad as that as blood runs black song everyone's raving about.

I think he's doing heel toe, too. You can hear it when he isolates his feet.

What song are you refering to? As Blood Runs Black is a band?

I thought you swore never to post here again?

Tambian89, yes they are a band.

And thefeckcampaign, in this case I'm not saying it sounds bad, it's just that guys like this get credit for triggering the hell out of their drums and playing heel-toe at high tempos whereas guys like Derek earn it through years of practice. Running on the pedals at 240bpm, no triggers is far more impressive. Does it sound the same? Yes. Is it as challenging as full-volume running on the pedals? No.

It's a bit unfair, and that's the part that matters.

but why does it matter if it is just as challenging or unfair? i thought the goal was to create music not be an athletic competition. if this was the WFD i can see your point but we are talking about the end result.

Brett already admitted he is doing heel toe.No big sectret and 300 is not a big deal now a days..for doubles
When I hit 1289 in 2001 it was just to be the first ..
The WFD video was to show drummers how to instantly achieve speed....
He sounds a bit too cocky for what HES DOING...
Yes I appreciate MORE the fact the DEREK has very strong legs and powerful double bass.

Yes, I'm aware it's not a big secret, it just annoys me that they get all this credit. It's more the fact that his whole kit is triggered that annoys me.

And thefeckcampaign, I was talking about the technique, not the music being made. It's so much easier. I understand your point, but it's not what I was talking about.
