Up to now, I've tended dropped hats and kicks entirely during what I 
imagine to be two-handed fills -- though, yeah, I suppose there's no 
reason a dextrous drummer couldn't keep it going with the foot pedals 
while flailing away at the snare or toms.  Can any drummers comment on 
what they do with the feet, if anything, whilst executing that fast, 
phrase-ending fill?
