Please consider purchasing my books in the Double Bass Drumming Explained series at BloomDrums.com/ebook.html or at your favorite ebook retailer. As requested, this is a companion video to my heel up/floating technique video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtRhLr.... there is a follow up video with exercises to help you here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Epv1rQ... See my video on what muscles to use and how to use them here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STC0A-...

FYI this is not the same as regular heel up playing, this is not just twitching my leg around, this is very loud and and suitable for high speeds AND high volumes, and this is more practical for rock and metal applications than any form of double strokes that I have ever heard of. This is not the only way to play, nor am I really dissing any other style... BUT I am saying this works really well, its really versatile, and it is consistent with the way that some of the fastest and most highly regarded drummers in the world play single strokes. So, enjoy!

[edit 12-1-11] I have just been informed by another user that this can also be referred to as "Flat Foot" technique. So, if you prefer that, by all means think of it that way.
