Accenting 'a' Counts In A Single Stroke Roll

A lesson on adding 'a' count accents to single stroke rolls.

In this lesson you will be placing accents on a counts in a single stroke roll. This is pretty straight forward as you are just making the last left hand of a quarter note block louder than the other notes. In a single stroke roll 'a' counts always fall on a left hand and your focus here should be on keeping the timing even while getting the specific strokes at the correct dynamic level.
