To my knowledge, semi-rhythmic drumming is mainly used, if at all, for enhancements of drum solo acts, and I do that as well, but that is not the direction I am personally exploring. While using the semi-rhythmic drumming technique as a tool for drum solos. I decided to try to take it one step farther.
Floating Feet, as I call it, is one of my additions to semi-rhythmic drumming technique. The Floating Feet technique allows a drummer to reach and play two or more drum pedals with a single foot and without losing any balance.
This technique alone allows me to transform a single rhythm into a very complex rhythm section!
I am using Floating Feet drum technique in every composition of Pilot 502.
It allows me to play base rhythm section using double bass, snare, hi hats, and a cowbell while simultaneously executing harmonic solos on toms, octobans, roto toms and cymbals using sticks and brushes.
