Thirteen Stroke Roll

Dave Atkinson

Sheet Music

The thirteen stroke roll is a less common rudiment based around double strokes. As with the five stroke roll, seven stroke roll, nine stroke roll, and eleven stroke roll, this drum rudiment uses one single stroke to end the odd-number group. It’s best incorporated into drum fills and drum solo patterns.
