Heel-Toe Technique Fills

Bass Drum Boot Camp

In this free video drum lesson, Jared Falk teaches you how to use the heel-toe technique within drum fills. He does so by taking you through 6 beginner to advanced examples taken from the 15-hour long Bass Drum Secrets 2.0 training pack.

Be sure to learn how to play the heel-toe technique before going through this lesson. It’s important that you develop a good understanding of the heel-toe technique, and learn how and what to practice to develop it accurately. Doing so will actually make it easier to master these drum fills. Come back to this lesson when you’ve been through the basics behind the heel-toe technique and actually know how to play it with at least one foot.

Once you start getting comfortable with the drum fills taught in this free drum lesson, we encourage you to use them in a musical setting. You can do so with the play-along we created specifically for mastering drum fills.

These drum fills can be played with the slide technique as well. Much like the heel-toe technique, the slide technique is used to play quick double strokes with the feet.
