How to drum roll, exercises with rolls and accents

Introduction to the video drum lesson: Rolls and accents 1

The drum sheet of this snare drum practice, contains a series of exercises alternating double strokes rolls and accents.

In these snare drum exercises you'll find the same schemes from the first lesson about accents, with the inclusion of rolls between an accented stroke and the other. In this case they are sixteenths of double strokes played by the right and the left hand. What you get is an alternation of rolls made by 3, 5, 7 and 9 strokes, separated by the accented strokes on the eights.
Like before, after you have played and learnt every single exercise in the drum sheet, repeat all the sequence of exercises in a row.
