Default Right Hand VS. Right Foot Independence

My right hand and right foot always move in synch with each other. Whenever i try some new beat with the kick I hit the highhat in the same beat when i want to just keep it in 4/4. I know that the way to overcome this is to practice, so I'm not asking for the solution, I'm just talkin about an obstacle I'm trying to overcome.

Default Re: Right Hand VS. Right Foot Independence

I'v noticed this problem when trying to learn to play double bass properly for the first time. I'm ok playing 8th's with my right hand and 16th's on my feet because i'm always playing my right hand and right foot at the same time. But when doing triplets with my feet my left foot comes town on the same beat as my right hand on every other 8th note and it throws me off.

To develop separation, practice single stroke and double stroke rolls between your hand and foot.

Please explain how to execute this. I really do appreciate the advice but being the novice that I am I do not know how to interpret the actions. :)

Single stroke roll between the hand and foot: HH-BD-HH-BD-HH-BD-HH-BD...
Double stroke roll between the hand and foot: HH-HH-BD-BD-HH-HH-BD-BD...

(HH= Hi-hat, BD= Bass drum)

try this one too bro!

HANDS = RLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLR

FOOT = RLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLR

play them both at the same time, then when you all fine with it try this:

HANDS =RLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLR

FOOT = RRLLRRLLRRLLRRLLRRLLRRLL

both at the same time again ^___^

thomas lang taught this in his dvd to get people into independence
