    With respect, it sounds to me like you don't want to work for it. If you want to get good, you're going to have to put in the time my friend.

    You could experiment with your heel up or your heel down to see which style you can play faster with.

    or if tour to lazy go with the double bass pedal

    Question 16th beats on kick drum

    First of all, Are you talking doing 16th's on one or two feet, What's the tempo?Does it reqiure two feet?, or one. I, know that it is all about balance. Do you feel better executing these notes sitting higher on the throne, or lower? Let me know how you make out on this.

    Default Pedal Tension

    It's my belief that many set the spring on their pedal too tight, thinking that quick return equals more speed. Actually, you can get more speed with less tension.
