07-19-2003, 04:44 AM
if you're interested, you can download a video (5 MBs) I recorded, which shows my feet and pedals, while doing an exercise I practise for some years now. It's alternating between 8th notes played as singles and 16th notes played as double at 200 bpm.
Just visit my band's website www.spring-tide.com
There's also a drumsolo-video and songs from our new album.

man, your double strokes are awesome and your technique is quite different. wish you have shown the left foot as well.
i'll get the other drum fiels as well.
your kit is too big hehe.. :)Great solo's though. How long have you been playing?

sometimes I like it BIG, with a lot of different cymbal sounds and toms. But I also enjoy playing on a simple 4 piece kit with just a ride and hihat cymbal. ;)
I started playing about 8 years ago with a small e-drum kit and changed to my acoustic set 4 years ago. I practise every day for at least 1.5 hours, on weekends 4-5 hours.
wow, see some guys here are easily compareable to the pros...by pros I mean the good ones...not the drummers who are pros as in tehy play in Limp...*shudders*...bizkit.

That was a good video of the kick pattern you referred to. You slide your toe on the footboard, don't you? I know another player who does that in the UK. You get a quick double. With the 1/4 and 1/8th notes up top, you get some nice effects.
I saw the drum solo and particularly enjoyed your single strokes, alternating from drums to cymbals, with kick accenting, ala Tony. Very powerful effect.
Keep up the good work.

hey, the video is excellent.would you (or anyone) mind explaining how this technique is done?
08-07-2003, 02:06 PM
I noticed that "slide" that I talked about before.
Do you do the same thing with your left foot?
08-07-2003, 11:03 PM
yes, I use the left foot the same way.
The whole motion of the foot feels and looks somewhat like a "wave". It is related to the well known "heel-toe technique", but with a slide from left to right, instead of back and forth.
by the way, this video showing my feet is about 1 year old now. I will record a new one probably this weekend, which will show both of my feet and with some new exercises.

I hope you don't mind me asking about
what you're doing. I have talked to a lot
of players about what they do on their
kicks. I find it very interesting to exchange
Believe it or not, I use heel-down and have
for over 27 years. A lot of people scratch
their heads about that. They don't get it.
It just shows how everyone's different but
my mind is open, even after so long a time.
Here I am, about to begin to double-kick.
I have to be sensitive to what takes place.
Again, I hope you don't mind my asking
about related information.
Thanks again, Matthias. Play on.
