Rudiment Section #1

40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #6

Double Stroke Roll

The Double Stroke Roll (#6 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is also known as the Open Roll. It also unofficially goes by its nickname, the Mommy-Daddy Roll. We play two even strokes with each hand. At a slower tempo we use mainly wrist, at faster tempos we can aplly finger control or controlled bounce, depending on the sound we want, and which surface we play the Double Stroke Roll on.

The Double Stroke Roll is one of the most important hand to hand patterns out there. There are many, many apllications for it in any style of music.

Then there are many stickings possible by combining Singles and Doubles. If you want more information about this please go to Parts C17 and/or S17 in Level 1.
