    Default basic beats

    Im just curious,we all start out with the basic 2and 4 on the snare and 1 and 3 on the base and every on the high hats.
    So I pose the question ,is there a basic pattern that can be practiced if one were to purchase a double base pedal?

    not sure, maybe try eighth notes with ur double bass, if ur new at it, go pretty slow
    being a succesful musician has nothing to do with being signed, popular or making alot of money. It has to do with making great music.

    yeah you need to start slow on the double bass. You can do your rudiments with your feet and train your left foot to keep up

    what he said, just keep the timing with the hats and snare. but do try it slow, your not going to be able to just jump on that thing and be amazing the first time

    Well, i don't have a double bass pedal, but i'll be buying one soon and in anticipation, i've started just tapping out a double bass beat like this with my feet and hands...
    h= hihat b=bass s=snare

    h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h
    --s---s---s---s-
    bbbbbbbbbbbbbb

    8ths on the hihat
    16ths on the double bass
    snare on the count of 3

    start it off slow and speed it up

    Shazane: They are firing that machine gun at a perfect 380 BPM in 7/8, while the agonized screams of the pigs are flawlessly harmonizing arpeggios at 20 notes per second.

    I can now (sort of) play sextuplets (16th note triplets) on the imaginary double bass drum
