Snare drumming exercises with single strokes

Introduction to the video drum lesson: Single stroke 1

The music charts of these lessons about single strokes contain drumming exercises with different combinations of strokes

Talking about resistance, for a drummer the single stroke is surely the most demanding. The music chart of this lesson shows some exercises dealing with single strokes, alternating fourths, eights and sixteenths. To develop speed, endurance and precision, you should play every pattern slowly at first, and increase the speed only when you find precision and equality of the strokes, and the maximum looseness.
You should play the exercises inverting the hands and, after you have learnt them singularly, you should repeat the exercises one after the other.
