    You can use all kinds of fills without double bass that will work in metal music. Just pull them off the records.
    Also drumbum has a place as a sort of hub for all the tab sites.

    I agree there are hundreds of things you can do with no double bass. One of those things is to play licks with the floor tom and bd so that you get a double bass kind of sound.

    sorry guys but i say if you`re gonna stick with metal either learn triplets on the single pedal or get a double .there really is no substitute for that double bassdrum sound on metal .

    btw this is only my opinion .

    just think of ur bass drum as just another drum...basically a really big floor tom and if u think of it like that the fills just come naturally

    If you can master the heel - toe method, you can make it sound like a double bass without actually having one. I've seen guys make their bass drum sound like a machine gun on a single pedal! Just takes LOTS of practice!

    Tommy Aldridge uses that. I have his "Drum soloing and double-bass workout" video. GREAT video!!! He uses double-bass with that method on each foot. Awesome!!
