Hey Guys,
I was going through Steve Smith's DVD again today and he describes a certain exercise, which he uses for his hands, that I think would work great for the feet as well.....

Looks a lot like the exercises that came with Virgil's MD video, but this specific one was not written out on his sheet....I think it looks like a good exercise for developing doubles....wadda you guys think????

I think it would be a damn good exercise, also, I think to improve co-ordination and hands, play a sticking pattern with the hands alternating with that feet exercise, just a suggestion! Man drums is an endless journey of new ideas and fun! :D

I do the same exercise while adding the feet at the same time (Thomas Lang suggestion).

I have so many instructional DVD's that I refer to regularly (i.e. Steve Smith; John Blackwell; Virgil; Dave Weckl; Tommy Igoe etc. etc.) that I find myself subconsiously creating exercises based on a potpouri of all of them.

I better watch out, I may be creating a monster.

Yah that's an excellent doubles-chops builder. I find I personally like to use hugga-dugga-burr's...

Thanks!

This Is All Really Good Stuff But Lets Get Back To The Beginning "the Bible" Its The Oldest And The Best " Stick Control" By Henry Stone Try It For Your Hands, Try It For Your Feet, Its The Best Chop Builder Ever.......

i think any combination of rudiments etc is gonna help ur technique.... doing stick control patterns on ur feet is the best tho

cycling thru this one is good for singles
