    Default About Kick Slide Technique


    I'm just getting started with the slide technique. I use Tama Iron Cobra 600 pedals.

    While working, I have difficulty in slipping my foot on the pedal while first pressing down a little and on the toe, then pushing the foot forward. It doesn't slide easily. Is it that way for you too or should it slide easily?

    Coud you please guide me.

    What kind of shoes are you wearing? I have specific shoes I have to wear when hardcore metal drumming because I need them to move more freely

    Neal Peart said in a video (paraphrasing Freddie Gruber) that he wore dancing shoes. Sneakers were too chunky and grippy for sliding on the pedals.

    He'd also clip the cuff of his pants so the beaters wouldn't get stuck in his pant legs.
