when i use the bass pedal do i keep my heel down at all times or do i kinda just hit the pedal on my toes
errrr......... only pedals I know about are my digitech rack. but my friend does keep his heel down when he uses the double bass pedals
If you can play music with enthusiasm and an honest effort, then no matter how flawed, noisy and unclean the music is, you are a musician. If you play just to be the best, you are not a musician, nor are you worthy of any musician's recognition. - me
I hit it on my toes, cos when I keep my heel on the ground, the muscles at the front of my ankle start to strain.

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.
