Burly Bob is 100% on the money. Daisy Chains are for aid climbing. Keep it that way. There is no reason you cannot use a sling to extend your belay device for rappels.

I am also surprised that someone was taught this in a class. I'm a guide and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams teach this. Somebody (the guide) doesn't know what they are doing if they are teaching this technique.

Learn to use the basic tools of the trade, slings, a small amount of cord etc. You do not need daisy chains in free climbing. Anyone telling you otherwise is full of shit.
