Double kick

DON’T MISS A BEAT – Sign up for my newsletter & I’ll send you some free drum lessons specific to your needs.

Let me start by saying this: There’s not much you can do wrong when it comes to choosing specific double-kick exercises. They all help.

Where people generally go wrong is having bad or incorrect technique, non-optimal kit ergonomics, and pedal settings that don’t work for their playing style.

Another issue with double-kick development, particularly when it comes to speed and comfort, is that drummers want it to happen overnight. Well, I’m here to tell you to scrap that idea entirely. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will the physical conditioning that must occur within your legs in order to play double pedal with a high level of control.

Measure your progress in weeks and months

Developing efficient technique and control of kick drum abilities is something that I consider to be crucial for any good drummer. It’s something that I love to help my students with and I cover extensively in detail in my Progressive Drumming Masterclass.

I’d love to speak to you in more detail about this if you’re ready to pour jet fuel on your drumming abilities.
