How to play a single stroke roll

As mentioned above, the single stroke roll is the most intuitive drum rudiment ever! 

Most children would play RLRL or LRLR etc. when catching a pair of drumsticks for the first time. Although the single stroke roll seems to be easy to play, it's a bit deceiving too!

Why?

Being able to play a proper and even single stroke roll takes a lot of time and commitment to a drummer's hand and finger technique.

Choose a low tempo!

The most important thing to pay attention to is an even single stroke played by each hand. To achieve this, you should choose a very low tempo. You have to be able to control the evenness of the strokes and the loudness too.
