Free Video Drum Lesson: Six Stroke Roll And Extension
This video lesson is about the drum rudiment called the Six Stroke Roll. Its also known as the Inverted Paradiddle-Diddle.
The pattern consists of six notes and is a combination of singles and doubles. The sticking for this rudiment is R L L R R L.
In this video I will show you how to take the Six Stroke Roll and orchestrate it around the drum kit. The video also demonstrates a cool way of extending the pattern with the addition of extra notes allowing even more creative potential.
The idea is that by adding an additional three note group (R L L), the pattern becomes a nine note group and can be moved from triplet upbeats to triplet downbeats with great ease.
