Building Better Double Strokes (part 2 of 3)

Today's exercise begins by having you play the "skeleton" 8th notes of your double stroke roll in the first measure.  Be sure to pay attention to what your hands and wrists are doing in this measure.  Stay relaxed, use your wrists and try to keep the same hand and wrist motion going as you play the second measure.  

The double strokes in the second measure should be played evenly, with no accents and sound like "digga digga digga digga".  Remember to keep a steady beat as you are playing and pay attention so that you don't slow down as you begin your double strokes.
