Developing and Using Single Strokes

Gergo Borlai shares interesting and creative ways to develop your single strokes and apply them in fill, solo and groove ideas.

In this pack, Gergo Borlai demonstrates exercises to develop single-stroke facility, and then shows you different ways to apply this facility to the drum set. The first three lessons take different rhythms using single strokes and move them around the drums in creative ways. Gergo then takes the concept of using constant left-hand singles and applies that to fill, solo, and groove contexts, including using steady left-hand singles over a samba-based ostinato.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  • Moving Accents with Singles
  • 16th-Note Triplet Singles
  • More Advanced Single Movements
  • Left-Hand Lead Single Stroke Ideas
