The Swivel Technique
The swivel technique is a great tool that can be used to play fast single strokes with
either a double or single bass drum pedal, or as a tool to help you play single stroke
rolls with the feet for longer periods of time. With the swivel technique, the feet pivot
on the pedals with the toes while the heels move from side to side. This will create a
stroke each time you swivel your foot. In this lesson, Dave shows you how this tech-
nique works and how you can use it to increase your endurance level.

If your still struggling with this technique make sure to check out module 18 where
Dave performs this technique in slow motion so you can see exactly how his legs
and feet behave.

Practicing Along To Music
There are a lot of drummers that don’t like to practice with a metronome. Don’t worry
if you’re one of them. You can use loops or music (with or without drums) instead of
a metronome. Since 99% of today’s music is recorded to a click track, you’ll have fun
tracks with no tempo fluctuations to practice along to. This is a great way of practicing
your double bass runs or just to experiment with different ideas on the double bass. In
this lesson, Dave gives you some tips on how to practice double bass with play alongs
or songs. He then plays along to YUCA’s song “Tomorrow” from their self-titled debut
album, showing you how you can use a song with no double bass to practice double

For more playalongs like this, make sure you check out modules 15, 16 and 17. First
watch the instructor play along to the song then use the provided audio CD’s to play
along yourself.
