    Endurance for single-stroke rolls

    Finger involvement in my left hand is limited a bit, can't push beyond some speeds because my right is so much faster. Any tips on working the fingers on my left?

    Endurance for single-stroke rolls

    I just tried your approach for a while. Felt much more intense than the 20-second runs, but I had to lower the bpm a lot.

    Endurance for single-stroke rolls

    So I'm doing endurance runs with a pad, trying to learn better rebound utilization as I increase the bpm on the click. I use a tabata app (it's for exercising as far as I know) and do 4 minutes at a time, 5 minutes breaks in between. The tabata app can be set to whatever amount of work time, but...

    Back at it (working on blast beats plus double kick)

    Yea like JimmyM says, you start slow - 60bpm or so - and start building up from 4th, 8th and 16th notes. That's what I'm doing currently with different exercises. It's a matter of controlling the pedals to the point where you can start speeding up.

    I was literally trying to learn the song structure by ear when I saw your post just now.

    Back at it (working on blast beats plus double kick)

    Finding the balance point seems to be a struggle every time I sit down to play faster.

    do you get stressed other drummers are better than you?

    Yes I stress about it all the time.

    Finding one's seat

    Swinging back and forth and finding the balance point when using the pedals helps me.
