ten 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 drumstick. The sticking pattern (shown below) is the accepted method of producing a ten stroke roll and consists of two strokes from each hand repeated and finished with two accented strokes (e.g. RRLL-RRLL-RL) for a total of ten strokes. The sticking patterns are written where "L" represents the left hand stroke and "R" the right hand stroke.
See more about double stroke open roll rudiments in the Appendix.
