With Nasty Lick 62, we explore the mixing of two great patterns:
the double stroke roll (as 32nd notes) and the “Foot-Right-Left” Triplet (as 16th note triplets).
As it turns out, they work really well together and offer many interesting possibilities. I really like the flowing sound that these combinations, when played well, create.
What do I mean by played well?
The doubles need to be very clean and quiet. The triplets should have power and all the notes need to be even. The most common mistake drummers made when they play hand foot combinations is to play the bass drum notes too loud relative to the hand notes. If the triplet combos are smooth and even in volume, and the double strokes are flowing and quiet relative to the triplets, the result will be a really beautiful Elvin-ish idea.
The sticking of these combinations is such that you should be able to come up with countless other variations on what I’ve presented here. So have at it.
