Drum Rudiments: The Single Stroke Four

Here is another drum rudiment which would enhance the single stroke roll. In that first lesson, the strokes were struck evenly spaced. In this rudiment one hand plays triplets (three evenly spaced strokes) before or after a single stroke is made with the other hand.

Below is the application exercise for the single stroke four. it is again recommended that you start at slower tempos then work on speeding up when you are comfortable at the lower tempos.

Nice lesson. I'll be able to apply it soon as I'm waiting to order a set from Dixon Drums when they're released next month. I saw them @ NAMM this year and they look awesome! Check them out @
