five stroke roll


A standard drum rudiment in the category of roll rudiments and the sub-category of double stroke open roll rudiments that creates a sustained sound on a percussion instrument by rapidly alternating two strokes from each stick. The sticking pattern (shown below) is the accepted method of producing a five stroke roll and consists of two strokes from each hand followed by a single accented stroke (e.g. RRLL-R) for a total of five strokes.
See more about double stroke open roll rudiments in the Appendix.
