Rudiment #11

Ten Stroke Roll

The Ten Stroke Roll (#11 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is a ten note pattern which consists of four unaccented Double Strokes and two accented Single Strokes. It’s officially notated in 2/4. This makes the Ten Stroke Roll a pattern of eight 16th notes long where we double the first four unaccented notes, then play two accented notes, and lastly two notes rest.

This is one of those patterns where we mix 16th and 32nd notes which makes it really obvious to me why I should favor the 1ktknktk way of counting. Not only is it way easier to count at higher speeds, it also helps to avoid confusion because it places the 16th note pronunciation at exactly the same position in both 16th and 32nd notes. Try it for yourself and see which you like better.
