Incorporating 5-Stroke Rolls into Grooves

Hey drum club! I’ve been working on a concept that I found while studying some of Johnny Rabb’s work. Johnny is such an innovator, and a monster behind the kit. One major focus of his is adding rolls to his grooves to add killer dynamic and textural changes to his playing. In the video below, you’ll see my take and interpretation on the concept of adding 5-stroke rolls to grooves. Now, back to the practice room… Enjoy!
