On the practice pad I think I am doing it, but won't be happy until I know for sure.
It makes a difference to me when the sticking/technique is explained. For example, the reverse snare thing was fine - but even better when you explained the sticking (i.e. five stroke roll) then I knew it was correct. Thanks.
Everybody does that differently. In my case - it is REALLY slurpy. I basically am playing a five stroke roll - but, instead of two strokes per hand, it is multiple buzzy notes so it's:

(R) single hit on tom
and at the same time: (L) on snareLLLllllllll
followed by (R): (R) on snareRRRrrrrrrr
then: (single hits on snare) L R, R

sounds like - Booodabop Bop!
