Australia Week – Hollow World Drummer Teaches You Double Stroke Kick Drumming

Hollow World are a lovely bunch of chaps, really nice dudes that play really vicious music that belies their laid-back nature as people. If you met Michael Hodgson on the street, you might not immediately assume him to be a skilled metal drummer in a crushing band.

But in this clip, not only does he demonstrate how to play a bit of their song “Silence” (the same bit we brought you earlier this week on guitar), he also demonstrates a pretty advanced technique of using double strokes on your feet. Now, I’m not much of a drummer, but I’ve tried this before with seriously limited success, so my hat’s off to you if you can get this going.

We’re always getting requests for more drum stuff, so here it is! Don’t say I never gave you anything.

Be sure to also check out our Rigged with Hollow World, and more from Australia Week!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
