    Default tips to improve double stroke roll?

    Does anyone have any tips to increase speed of my double stroke roll? It seems i'll never be able to do it fast.

    If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.

    Yes pillows are a great way to work on chops. Also, when practicing double strokes, on the pillow I hope, concentrate on NOT accenting the first stroke, but instead accent the second stroke.

    Example:

    lL rR lL rR etc.

    This, when applied to the kit will help you double strokes to be more even.

    You might also wanna practice using all your fingers to rebound the stick and give your second stroke more power. If you really want to learn the best way to do them watch Brains video shredding repis on the gnar gnar rad. It has a section just on the up down stroke which teaches you how to gain the control to get clean double strokes and so forth. When I do my double strokes I use the up down technique to get accents on both notes and I also use all my fingers to give my roll more power.
