Note: On your phone, PDF documents may only open if you choose the “Save, Replace, or Keep Both” option and then it will be downloaded and notify you of this on the top of your screen. Open it there or in your Downloads folder and it will give you the option to Open with Adobe Acrobat, Drive, or some other PDF app you have installed on your phone. If you watch the associated video, it will open in another tab/window so that you can easily bounce back & forth between the PDF doc and the video. If your screen is big enough you can even arrange the windows next to each other!
Rudimental Chart Collections containing Double-Stroke Rudiments:
Note: If a Double-Stroke is “expanded/relaxed/loosened” for a more “opened-texture” and given a Note/Time-value as with the Single-Strokes, like R R L Front-Side Triplet or R R L R Reverse Paradiddle, these rudiments will be found on the Diddles page. As in the 4-Stroke Rolls R r L R, if the Double-Stroke R r is “contracted/compressed” for a more “closed-texture” into grace-notes of an unspecified Note/Time-value and connected as a Setup to a Principle-Stroke like into rrL R Drag Tap, then this rudiment will found on the Drags & Ruffs Page. The level of complexity and uniqueness of sound has caused others in history to classify them differently, but you really should view them as all related on a spectrum of open-to-closed texture.
Note: Double-Stroke Rolls have a Single-Stroke (often accented) at the beginning (R l l r r) for a Release rhythmic-energy-contour, at the end (r r l l R) for a Buildup rhythmic-energy-contour, or at both ends (R l l r r L) for a Dip rhythmic-energy-contour like a Samba, so make sure to practice them all 3 ways!
