    Stunning ability mate. When I was gigging back in the 60s to 80s I had quite a fast foot but nothing like what you can do. When I came back to it in 2007 with this Roland E thing I bought a double Iron Cobra Power Glide because I thought I would be struggling with one kick pedal. On the whole though it didnt work out to bad but I cant play heel up any more. Thanks for the vid though. Ive seen a couple of things to try.

      Thanks very much John...I appreciate the compliment. I gigged thru the 60s to the 80s as well,,,I gave it up in 1992 to do more down-to-earth work. I picked it back up in 2006 and haven't looked back. I have other vids on my site if you care to peruse...I'm going at it now for my own enjoyment and not a living any ore...play strong!

        Yea these E thingys allow you to play along to whatever you like. It seems our time lines are very similar. I only did it semi pro because I was a qualified design engineer and as you no doubt know, music dont pay much unless your Keith Moon, Roger Taylor, Mitch Mitchell, Stewart Copeland, Charlie Watts or Ringo Starr. I will look at your other Vids Mate.

          I did my stint, 6 nights a week for almost 21 years. Lots of roadwork with the showbands and plenty of local venues. It was a living but not a profitable one. I looked at it like I retired right out of college, because I was doing what I wanted to do as a living when I could. Now I'm having to work to get by, and having my fun recording and producing vids for lessons...it's been a great go of it!
