Yeah I had the same problem to cause I wear a size 13. So try this, 1st hit-heal up, 2nd hit-toe comes up a little and come down with you whole foot. Or you can try doing a doulble hit (like your doing a roll) and slow it down until you even out the hit's, Then slowly try to speed it up as you get better. Hope I've been helpful.

I wear 13 and I could do it it just takes practice

For real.  I guess people learn to play a certain way, and they want to perfect THAT method.  But taking the time to learn another technique can only benefit you in the long run.

Nah I disagree, I use to play heel-toe and Im telling you that in the long run it is cheeting!

hmmm... BBD, I'm just trying to understand why you say its cheating.

To me it's like the Buddy Rich push-pull technique... it's a "slight-of-hand" technique for both push-pull & heel-toe that just maximises the movement from our body's natural ergonomics. Are you referring to the fact that it feels like cheating because you see it as degrading the value of music in a song & how the sound was produced?

Just trying to understand.

great clip sabe.  um, this guy joe ballistic also sends out a dvd with that stroke explained.  as you see it, i would recommend doing it to a slow burn just to get it into your muscle memory then i would work on exercises to perfect it.

it can be done even if your feet are huge.  just when you get the initial motion down, you can slide your foot down a little bit and the strokes will still come out.

I've been seeing his name a lot on here. JoJo Mayer has the best display I've ever seen of it. He has plenty of power and control.

***** you tr yen to fight me! ;D I'm saying that the heel down stroke can be played as a normal stroke. So really heel down is the same movement as your foot so why not just use your foot. I can do that Jojo Mayer stuff with one foot.(Please don't take that as boasting!!!)
