Double Bass Drum Lesson 1 – Basic Logic

Double Bass Drum Lesson 1 – Basic Logic


Hello everyone, this is the first video of
my double bass drumming tutorials. In this video series I will talk about double
bass drumming, explain some techniques, …some exercises, hardwares.. and try to give as much as info which you are curios about. First of all in this video I’m going to
show you the basic and the simple key exercises… …of double bass drumming. These exercises that I’m going to show you are for both, beginner and advanced players… …which I mean.. these are the main exercises to get into double bass drumming. Even playing 20 years of double bass I still do these exercises for improvement. So we have 4 main exercises and each one of them has it’s own purpose. I will play them with a slow tempo, a mid tempo and a fast tempo. So the first one is simple. Playing the main beats, (1-2-3-4)s with our right (main) foot. The second one is playing the (1-2-3-4)s (main beats) with our left (slave) foot. And it’s purpose is to strenghten the left (slave) foot. And the third one is playing the ‘ands’ 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and, the offbeats with our right (main) foot. And it’s purpose is to teach the feeling and the sound to the left (slave) foot… …the left foot is going to learn from the right (main) foot. And the fourth one is playing the ‘ands’ the offbeats with our left (slave) foot. And at last we will combine exercise 1 and exercise 4 to reach our goal 2nd and especially 3rd exercises are main
key for improvement here because the human body… …is not symmetrical, does not have the same capacity both sides equally. So you must teach the weaker side of the body to do it. You must let the better side to show the weaker side of the body. And it’s of course the same thing with the hands too. That’s a very important thing in drumming. And by the way while playing these exercises, it’s not so important what you have played… …with your right hand. It can be Quarter Notes or 8th Notes.. whatever you like to play. Okey, so the next video will be about ‘Building Up The Speed’. So see you in the next one.
