George Kollias and Tim Waterson have some clips that show them using the SWIVEL TECHNIQUE on the bass drum pedal on You Tube.  I seems to me that they are getting amazing results with that technique and I am totally impressed with that.

Are any of you either using or working on the swivel technique?

I'd like to hear some comments about the technique.

Hey PASHA,

I think these will demonstrate what I'm asking about in this thread.  Let me know what YOU think!

Very interesting indeed! - It is a first time I have heard about this one, but I can say that I was practicing it for a while now, (personally I call it floating feet technique) but I was using it to "hit" more than one pedal at a time. So I am swiveling to a second pedal, and I never thought that the technique can be used on a single pedal!

PS: here is some reference to my version:

Although I Had read your cited discussion of floating feet before.... I didn't make the association until now.

I've always had that little lateral foot motion with I play fast patterns on my double bass pedals, but I never realized that it was actually part of a much-studied speed/motion technique.  For me, it was just another one of those things that I just DID without thinking about it.

I MADE myself conscious of it last night and noticed that I certainly do "swivel" my feet.  As a matter of fact, speaking of ON A SINGLE PEDAL...I also do it on my hi hat pedal when I'm playing straight eights with my foot.

Are any of you using using the Swivel Technique described earlier in this thread?

Have any of you tired it, but didn't continue to use it because of the poor results you experienced?

Have any of you tried it and experienced improvement or other good results?

I use the swivel method naturally also, I find that Im only able to do it with my right foot ( the good foot ).
I use the swivel when playing, I find it pretty easy but like i said just the one foot. Im using the left as balance I think.
I must try left and get back to you all on this.
remind me if I forget.

its pretty cool this one, when i started wanting to go fast on my pedals,my feet automaticly did what aperently is called swiveling, i didnt knew what it was but automaticly my feet make that motion.when i found out it was an existing technique i started focussing on it more ( its going all right )
