Rudiment #10

Nine Stroke Roll

Exercises

 

10a

This is nothing more than showing the Nine Stroke Roll being played hand to hand in 3/4. I think this should have been in the rudiment already because it automatically changes starting hands. Anyway for reasons of clarity here it is.

This puts the Nine Stroke Roll in 5/8 making it more efficient to practice. More time playing is less time doing nothing, right?

Don’t be scared by the 5/8 Time Signature. She’s actually quite nice once you get to know her. How do you get to know here, you ask? By counting along.

Just try it, it’s good for you. You’ll learn something new while you’re practicing rudiments, and by overcoming this you won’t be scared next time. Or at least a bit less scared..
