Default Singles in 16ths & 32nds

Hey guys!

Here's an hand exercise where you play 16ths with one hand then fill up with the other hand to create 32nds. Then, on the last beat, I play a paradiddle to flip the sticking over. Jim Chapin used to play this kind of stuff.

I hope you'll enjoy!

So what keeps your hands from just developing this into a double stroke roll technique? I ask because the motions are the same I use for double strokes. I can’t imagine inserting a stroke between the first and second strokes as shown in the vid. But then I am 70 and a bit set in my ways....

To me, singles and doubles are pretty different and I treat them separately. Singles are much harder to keep in shape (for me at least) and I use different motions for doubles which makes them smoother whereas singles tend to be more agressive. (I'm not sure I'm answering your question though).

Thank you! I strive for effortlessness. (it could still be a little more effortless in my opinion).

Love it! Thanks, Dan.


I print out many of your PDFs and use them in practice, always helpful.



What type of practice pad are you using?
