Could be interesting to hear if you had multiple kick drums with different tunings. Has anybody else on here tried it with their feet and do you have any recordings?
Peace, Sammy J
ya, though i play just a swiss triplet. i don't think you could actually pull off the diddle in the middle sans being grant collins, virgil, lang, etc
it's actually one of my favorite double bass licks, i must credit Jeff Bowders for showing it to me, he is also the first guy i heard doing this, and other cool stuff.
check out below, the lick clean at 1:04. pretty cool solo all the way around. it's also how he's playing the hihat/kick ostinato in the second half of the solo. jeff's a great guy and a rad player.
First off, that dude's a mothereffer. Secondly, that's not a blushda, it's a herta (or four stroke ruff). Thirdly, this Jeff Bowders can play! Quatro-ly, this thread has finally made me smile!
I don't think Josiah was claiming it was a blushda, I interpreted that as Josiah saying that Jeff Bowders showed the swiss triple with the feet to him, which is the lick he is referring to at 1:04 in the vid. I heard Swiss Triplets with the feet there as well not a four stroke ruff, but the audio is a bit distorted.
Love watching Steve's blushda video, even all of my non-musician/drummer friends know what the blushda is and have seen the video lol
