I have a drummer who is absolutely amazing at everything. He can play Buddy Rich stuff...not joking...but he isnt fast at the double bass. I was hoping that you could give me some good tips and tricks that i could relay back to him. Please help.

Practice. It's the only way he is going to get better.

He seriously just has to play the drums with the pedal as often as possible. He'll get better and faster the more he does it.

I do play the drums (as well as guitar and bass) and I'm telling you all he needs to just practice more with the double bass, using it as much as possible, building up speed as he gets better.

im a drummer wenever he gets the chance he has to use his feet and wenn hes using the pedals start slow and work your way up if you try for super fast right away it takes longer to develop trust me i know... i went threw it and also make sure he doesnt ver use double bass listen to aaron gillespie of UnderOATH that guys amazing with double bass he uses it in perfect moments and doesnt overdue it unlike most drummers who think its important to have crazy double bass especially metal drummers.

Oh, also if he has money to spend, tell him to get one of those CD player things that lets you turn down the speed of songs. He can then pop in a cd with double bass on it and slow it down to a beat he can practice it at, as he listens to it in headphones or whatever, and as he gets better keep turning the speed up, these things are very useful, that's how I practice stuff on drums.

I know a lot of people probably don't like Avenged Sevenfold, but when I was starting out learning double bass, the best song to practice on was Beast and the Harlot, the beginning has really good double bass to follow along to.

I thought it was like a double string bass. I didn't even clue in till here that it was drums

theres no way around practicing but a catalyst to developing speed like your hands is playing hand exercises with your feet while doing a back beat with your hands. It helps both speed and fluidity.

If he's a good drummer he'll already know stuff like that, just practice, that is all.

Maybe for a roll, then use a double bass. But for triplets, I like to use one.

does he have double pedal or a single pedal? For a single pedal - lift the back of of the foot off the pedal and have ur foot sort of float above the pedal wit only ur toes touching the front part of the pedal. tell him to practice the downward and upward motion with his foot without moving his leg. Im not good at the drums but whenever i fool around, i can execute the double bass easily.
