Any tips guys? i'm trying to get some nice smooth doubles on my toms, "ACOUSTIC" not electric, we all know electric is way to easy to get doubles on the toms lol!
I have sort the same dilemma I have been playing all my life, 30 some odd years doing clubs and arena gigs and my double strokes have always and still do suck. Lately i have been hitting them harder. Accenting the second double does help articulate them better. Find the combination that sits with you, whether it be triplets or paradiddles etc. Also I battle the surface, I do great on the pads, but on the snare, it seems to fight me more.
