Any beginners reading any of these technique posts should at least practice all the different techniques to get comfortable enough to retain the muscle memory. And as your skills develop, you will find that you are using these techniques automatically as required.

And use a metronome - I put students on them from the start.
Great advice, students should try all techniques until they find they one(s) that work for them

Re: Heel Toe

Carmine Appice also played for Cactus.

Great double bass work on a song called "One Way Or Another" which is also the cover. That's one of my favorites.
