Build Ups Using 16th Note Rolls

In this concept we are going to play a normal single stroke roll pattern but apply to dynamics used in the previous lesson. This will look like this:

A 16th note fill with dynamics.

So like in our previous fills, start with your hands low down and gradually pick up the stick height until you are playing loud at the end of the bar.

Variations on this can be achieved in a similar way to our last lesson. Messing with the orchestration and adding feet will create some more great sound fills.


  1. Using the 2 minute rule, get this fill up to a tempo of at least 130bpm.
  2. Add this fill into one of the structures we have covered previously.
  3. Create your own fill pattern using this concept.
