Double bass pedal?

Play with a metronome


EDIT: Start at slow tempos about 80 and keep in time with that then build up faster. It will sound awful if you just start at a really high tempo.

to be honest i wouldnt bother with one you can learn with single kick.

yep double bass pedal:

Start out slow...amazingly its hard to keep a steady pace at the slow speeds
then when you want to ramp up the speed keep everything steady.

I normally keep my heels off the pedals at the higher speeds which gives me more control

Heel toe technique. Its basically the more advanced version of double bass. If you can play open close technique with your hands, then you can do it with your feet too. This video might help you a bit

The way i got quick with my feet was whenever i sat down i would tap my feet like i was playing as fast as i could while staying in time...especialy in school...pissed many people off doing that

Alternate just tapping your feet, wherever you are, I can play double bass, even though i'm not really a drummer just by tapping all the time.

It's a good way to do things.

Yeah use the book stick control (for your hands) and do all the paradidlles and rudiments with youor feet. That and use a metronome.

My advice is to improve your right foot strength. Can you play quick punk beats on time? A lot of it is instinct and practice. Just like guitar, how do most people learn how to sweep. You start slower and you keep practicing until you improve.
