SINGLE bass drum

today on a rehearsal my guitarist told me to watch my right foot when gooving and not to allow it to "work on its own". yeah, I know you may be bored being asked about it again and again but... what do you guys do to make your right foot (as well as the left one) more confident and steady? when you e.g. groove do you have to have this certain rhythm practiced and memorised or you have your ways to make it work better and simply use this taught skill while playing or soloing. does anybody know what I mean?
You are free to do as they tell you...

I'm not sure I understand fully what you mean, but try to pay attention to the spaces between the notes, rushing is natural and we sometimes push with the bass drum, is that what you mean?
