As double bass playing becomes more common among all genres of music (not just metal!), we figured this lesson would be useful for drummers looking to improve their coordination and overall control with their pedals – whether you’re advanced or just picking one up!

Want to spice things up? Try adding quintuplets (groups of 5) and septuplets (groups of 7) to the note value exercise! Good luck!
