The Double Stroke Roll – FH#3

In this lesson, we’re going to learn the 2nd of our 3 basic rudiments, the Double Stroke Roll. As the name suggests, this rudiment consists of 2 strokes per hand and is often referred to as the drummer’s speed stroke (think the 20th Century Fox intro). This roll will affect everything from grooves to fills, so be sure to add this to your regular practice routine.

It is recommended that you have complete the following lessons before starting this lesson:-

  • Basic Grip
  • The Single Stroke Roll

This is lesson #3 in the Fundamentals Hands Course.
