a 7 stroke roll. Starting on the second sixteenth note of the beat(the e)I'm going through Wilcoxin's The All American Drummer and there's a bit I'm not too sure on (from solo #3).
Should I play this as a 5 stroke roll preceded by a drag, or play it as a 7 stroke roll? Or are both interpretations correct?
Is that what it is? I asked my teacher about a similar measure a while back and he said it should be counted in triplets.a 7 stroke roll. Starting on the second sixteenth note of the beat(the e)
I think you might be thinking of just a straight 7 stroke roll across the value of an eighth note (which is very common in snare studies), which would start on the upbeat usually (of an eighth note) and yes, it is counted in triplets but in 16th note triplets. It is the same length as a 5 stroke but you play the main sticking as 16th note triplets. By 'main' I mean the outlining sticking ie. RLRL and then you double the first three with the last L landing on the beat.Is that what it is? I asked my teacher about a similar measure a while back and he said it should be counted in triplets.
Is that what Wilcoxin had in mind here? The 7-stroke roll counted as 'and-trip-let 2'...with the drag on the front?
