Hi! I just got into foot stomping while playing and I think it will help my rhythm alot.
Somehow some phrases are hard to play while stomping.

Do you guys have some tips on how to stomp while playing fast and more complicated phrases?

Thanks a lot!

Tap your toes instead?

Are you talking about about whole leg movement stomping or foot tapping? If it's the former I can't say much other than you should probably tone it down if you're technique suffers.

Stomping will not help your internal rhythm, my guitar teacher doesn't even want me to bob my head to music. Try and feel the beat of the music rather than stomp your foot.

Also, a metronome will work wonders.

Well, that's quite the opposite to what my teacher taught me

We played some 7/8, 11/8 and 13/8 stuff while stomping our feet.

I don't really like stomping my foot but a basic 7/8 stomping pattern goes like following:

1 2 1 2 1 2 3

stomping at every 1. Try playing any motif with that.

Why the hell would you NOT bob your head/tap your foot?

Seriously, give me a good reason.

Your teacher is an idiot.

Watch and learn!

But it's the same thing as tapping your foot, it's just a bit more exaggerated. All you need to do is practice playing them slower and build up speed. You're having two different rhythms going on and your body is conflicted on which one to follow and choosing the foot tapping.

Practice to a metronome, while you stomp your foot to the beat and slowly build up speed. You'll have it in no time.

Heel toe?

Sorry, drums is my second instrument.. But usually the only odd meters I play on is 7/8 and 5/8. Usually I'll just stomp on the downbeat and bob my head on the "extra" note (the 7th note in a 7/8 bar). That tends to keep me flowing pretty well.
