learn metal, which includes double bass, but then that means I need to take time out of stuff I love like rock, alternative, latin, funk. Stuff I've played for years and never needed a double pedal.

The only times I used a double pedal was for grooves but I shrunk the size of my kit to just 3 toms, kick, snare, 4-6 cymbals, and other percussion toys. Which is why I was sought after.

However, I love to play, and because I'm not seeking a metal band that requires double bass, I figured what's the point? Actually, I helped start bands and played gigs because I could play stuff that most "metal" guys couldn't play.

Metal is not the only style of music that a double pedal can be utilized. Almost all the music you listed has potential for double pedal usage....It doesn't have to be straight 1/8 or 1/16 note continuous patterns....


Right - and a good point. Most of my double-bass work was devoted to patterns. I might burst a very short roll here and there, but the music I played (before Metal was very well defined) didn't call for it; and I'm not sure I would've been lured in that direction.
