Stephane Chamberland: How to achieve Technical Balance
Lessons from 'The Weaker Side'
Pedal Control is about a deeper understanding of foot movement on the drumset. The power of great foot execution adds an intensity to modern music that has revolutionized modern drumming. Simply put, Pedal Control is about controlling the pedal! It is about you achieving the ability to play whatever idea your heart and mind dictate.
The objective of this book is to focus on the most-often neglected part of the drummers body: the feet. Page by page you will better understand your potential and the need for this workout. Exercises from Its Your Move have been used for foot development in Part 2 of this book.
