Double pedal searching

Also I used to sit down and practice just using my left foot on the bass, instead of using my right foot, playing along to a cd just to build up the coordination and feel in that foot
this is one of the hardest things to start doing, but it works a miracle. I got my elims and couldn't play anything double on them. So I started practicing just using my left pedal. It's very difficult (at least if your as out of shape with your left as I am) but once you master it your feet will be easier to train

Trick pedals rock. They will soon come out with a high hat pedal. They cost a lot, but I have never played anything better.

I'm sure that you could play intricate and complex progressive beats with your double pedals the day you got them out of the box, and could hold 32nd notes for half of a song right?

Not making you feel bad, but anyone can 'use' a double bass pedal out of the box, especially a well tuned elim/dw. I'm almost certain that you could also out play a few 'professionals' when you first got them too. Most people can. It's learning how to properly play your double bass pedal that takes practice.

I'm sure you were an awesome drummer the first time you set up your kit too...
