How to Play the Drums : How to Play a Double Stroke Roll on the Drums


I’m going to demonstrate the double stroke
roll. The double stroke roll just like it sounds it’s 2 hits on each hand. Starting
with the right as a right handed drummer. I always start everything with the right.
So it’s right right, left left, right right, left left, and so on. Double strokes are very
important especially for rudimental drummers, not so much in heavy metals such as I play,
but it actually opens up the gate for you to be able play a lot of rudiments such as
paradiddles, 5 stroke rolls, 6 stroke rolls. So it is an important roll to get down. So
here we go, double strokes. That was a double stroke roll with a couple single hits at the
end.
