well, all drumers use the clumsy foot to drive the HH, so that should 
be possible :-)

this is probably the point. I found that its important to use *the 
leg which does not support the guitar* for the rhythm tapping. Since 
my guitar sits on the right leg, I use the right foot for volume 
control, which is not a problem. Its big toe additionally activates 
the Overdub button (built into the volume pedal) which is a little 
trickyer, especially when I do Record-Overdub (which turns the 
Overdub press into a time defining one).
