Funkin’ Five Stroke Roll VariationsNate Brown
This lesson explores variations of the technique originally taught in That Funkin' Five Stroke Roll video lesson.
The placement of the five stroke rolls creates a displaced, funky back-beat on the “ah” of beat 3. We can add a little flare to the technique by re-orchestrating the right stick to different surfaces during the five stroke rolls. Numbers 2 through 4 explore other surfaces (i.e. the ride and toms).
