Rudiment #4

Multiple Bounce Roll

The Multiple Bounce Roll (#4 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) a.k.a. Buzz Roll or Press Roll requires a different kind of grip than rolls based on Singles or Doubles do. We can use it in a multitude of ways to create a nice legato sound.

Sticking

R…L…R…L…

Counting

This depends on the tempo and the feel of the rhythm it’s used in. If you would play quarter note buzz strokes in music which has a 16th note feel at tempo quarter note = 60 bpm you would probably count 16th notes.

Exercises

The first exercise is a quarter note and 8th note buzz stroke combination. Pay extra attention to the difference in pressure between the two different note rates. To keep the tempo nice an even I would suggest counting 16th notes at quarter note 60 bpm.
