Drumming question: left handed but right footed?
I am a beginner with the drum... I am left handed, play drums open handed (which, by the way, is it acceptable to do that?) and use my right foot with the pedal. It's the way I feel most comfortable. Are there any advantages? Does anyone else recommend anything or play the same way I do?

I play left handed. I would recomend not using open hand but if it feels comfortable do it. it also depends on what music your play. I never use the hi-hat pedal so i could use either foot fot the bass. but I also use a double pedal. Just make sure you cross your arms and have the hand you are using to hit the hi-hat on top and go from there. Youll learn different ways and adapt as you play.Source(s): Drummer for 9 years
