By Emmanuel Morin on November 2, 2010
Format: Paperback
Regardless of other people's negative reviews about this book, I found Pedal Control to be a complex book with tons of useful information about feet control ! It not only covers the theory about pedal technique and setup, but it gives you a lot of practical exercices to develop your feet. Today's drummer recognize the importance of developping the hands, but we can't ignore the fact that feet control is now an essential part of the drummer's curriculum. Of course, it requires time, practice, dedication and commitment, and the book cannot gives you that ! This is the player's part of the game ! If one is dreaming of a magic pill, then this book is not for you ! What the book does is giving you an OPPORTUNITY to work hard on your feet. It gives you the right tools and exercices to make shure you attain your objectives. If you master every single page of this book and still don't feel the improvement of your feet, then I really don't know what can help you ! Be patient and work hard ! This is all there's to do ! This is what I do and what I'll continue doing. Why ? Because I feel a tremendous improvement and this gets me excited to the highest level ! I like challenges ! I like my feet and I certainly like Pedal Control ! I definitely recommend it to anyone who's ready to bring their feet to a new level ! Two thumbs up !

This book is not what I expected. There is very little in the way of describing the actual mechanics of the techniques that are described - the authors simply describe the techniques and then get you into doing some very mundane exercises without elaborating on the proper way to execute the techniques. Very disappointing!

Very useful book, similar to "It's your Move" by Famularo, but for feet, to improve your bass drum technique.
