    I usually anchor myself on my right foot and slam my pedals with my left. On a good day, I'll stand with my feet square and just turn on my pedals with **** **** ** **** ***.

    You guys?

    Normal Effects- majority right, some left

    Wah/Expression- right

    Some times there is another foot that comes out of nowhere and steps on w.e it wants too

    whichever foot happens to be closer as I groove... I'm somewhat ambidextrous.

    although I almost always use my right foot for my wah

    Left foot for stomping, right foot for expression pedals. That comes from being on the stage left most of the time, mind you.

    Usually the right. Somehow seems more natural to me.

    I was predominitnaltetleyt right, until I played a gig which necneroseeisited the use of Left Foot Only, due to Stupid Cramped Stage. Since then I've forced myself to be able to use both.

    At least you're still typing... mostly words.

    I usually wake up the next day with a hangover and a lot of messages made up of predominantly grammatical characters like semicolons and commas. Sometimes I'll get actual letters, but it's usually too many consonants in a row to form any real sound.

    Used to be a right foot anchorerererer, left foot pedal toucher, but now I'm a double foot swiveler and fulltime kneeler and hand finesser.

    I want to be this guy and do everything:
  12. I mainly use my left foot, learning to use both and cover more ground
  13. any foot i like

    Pretty much the right. Sometimes both when I'm sitting, especially playing through headphones because I keep a bare toe on something to ground out some noise.

    Left foot for everything. It just feels natural that way.

    I know that guy, and he's a huge douchebag. Tried doing business with him, and he's the only one that's ever tried to screw me over that hard. :rollno:

    Does have a lot of pedals, though.

    The foot that does a search first:D

    but really, on larger boards i've used my left foot to switch things on and my right for expression pedals. Ever since i switched to my smaller board i've just been using my right foot.
