Drum Rudiments: Rolls, Flams & Paradiddles : Drum Rudiments: 9-Stroke Roll


Now we have the nine stroke roll. If you watched
the video on the five stroke and the seven stroke, you know what’s coming up. The same
thing, just adding two more beats. Now at the end of this, you end up on your right
hand, so when you go to repeat it you’re going to switch over to the left hand. I’m going
to count it off for you – one, two, three, four. One, two, three, four, five, six, sev,
eight, nine. One two, three, four, five, six, sev, eight, nine. Another thing, when you’re
counting up like that – one, two, three, four, five, six, sev – you say, “sev”, because if
you say, “seven”, you’re going to have to say it quicker and you’re going to add more
beats to it. So you just keep it simple – sev. So you count it, “one, two, three, four,
five, six, sev, eight, nine.” And then you can practice that starting with the left hand,
too. And the nine stroke roll, I’ll play it for you just a little bit quicker. One, two,
three, four. I was just messing around a little bit. That’s the nine stroke roll.
