I don't have drum set in my room, so I was trying to practice bare foot with mimicking the motion of my foot when I kick with a pedal. I have several concerns about this practice.
First, practicing bare foot. I am not sure if this is harmful or not. Secondly, the feeling and motion is in general not the same when you are on drums. I know it is pretty normal that practicing drum bass without pedals would not be ideal but I just want to optimize the practicing method.
I found some material in the web which try to answer the question, but I suspect the quality and scope of them generally. I also would like to learn more from drummers here.
I also would like to here some rudiments (if they exists) which are more suitable for a pedalless practice. Also, using the motion of pedal to do some more kicks without full effort kind of techniques are obviously hard or impossible to do in my setup and a recommendation in that aspect would also be appreciated.
