Stick Control Double-Stroke Roll Exercise

In the same vein as an earlier single-stroke roll exercise, we’re going to use George L. Stone’s Stick Control to help develop our doubles. First, we want to convert the exercises from page 5 of Stick Control into triplets. For example exercise 5 (paradiddles) will looks like this:

Para - Full Score

We then add 2 bars of 16th note double-stroke rolls. Apply this method to all of page 5:  

Stick Control Doubles Exercise - Full Score 2


After you’ve mastered page 5, move onto pages 6, 7, 8 and beyond.
