Teach Your 6 Stroke Roll New Tricks

Recommended Posts

Very nice lesson, Chris. I'm going to go away now and lock myself in my drum room for a month of Sundays til I get that. The 6-stroke roll is one that continues to elude me. I get the count. I just can't seem to lock into the rhythm.

Later,
Mike H

Hey Mike and Mike! Thanks for checking out the video!! I know everyone always says.."Practice it Slow"...But it's the truth with this one. It took me a while to get it smooth. I really found that locking on to the accents allowed it to flow more for me. the doubles should be very ghosted. You want your arms to kind of go in a wave motion. Like the kind of wave where you would see an audience at a baseball game. Your left goes up and the right follows in that wave like motion. Really exaggerate that motion even if it looks ridiculous. As one hand comes down for the accent, the other follows shortly after. I would also suggest using a metronome app that clicks off 16th note triplets. If you can accent certain clicks...even better. That will be a good guide to follow. Again do it slow and just focus on feeling what you hear. :)
