Double Pedal

Hey, so I consider myself a pretty solid drummer all around, except for double pedal, with which I play very rarely. Honestly I don't need it much for the music i currently play, but I feel like learning it would help me to become a more well-rounded drummer. So my question is, how did you guys begin learning to use a double kick pedal?

Question Re: Double Pedal

Same goal. Same experience. I got a beat up second hand bass drum, filled it full of blankets, put on a soundless cloth head and practised single and double-stroke rolls till I was blue in the face. I also worked on quad patterns between feet and hands. You need to muffle because it drives non-drummers crazy. You need to pack the drum with blankets or pillows to give a hard surface to bounce the beaters off of.
