Default Siege of Delhi score by Blair "Buzz" Brown

I'm a beginner drummer, and was wondering if anybody can help me on how to play the roll in the second bar of the first line in Blair "Buzz" Brown's score of Siege of Delhi.

I know that it starts on the right hand, and if the roll were to be a regular 16th-note roll that it would be a 5-stroke roll. For example, it would be (R)buzz-(L)buzz-(R)tap. What is throwing me off is the fact that it is a dotted 16th-note roll and ends on a right accent. I would be thrilled if somebody could tell me exactly how it is played.

Hi SAB. Welcome to the Forums, and best of luck in your drumming career.

I pulled out my Buzz Brown book with the accompanying CD to look and listen to your roll in question. The roll you refer to is an accented roll on the "and" of the first beat. Technically, from what I have been told, when a roll begins with an accent, the first beat is a single beat, so this roll would be:

R-tap, L-buzz, R-tap.

But, when I listened to Buzz's recording, it sounds like a standard 5 stroke roll. Don't get all confused with the dot/cut stuff IN this roll. The roll is so short that the dot/cut doesn't really enter into it. What is important is that the flammed beat before the roll is a thirty second note, so the roll begins IMMEDIATELY.

Buzz is the Moderater of this forum, so maybe he could elucidate.

Where in Louisiana are you located? Have I met you?

Thanks, Bonnie. That's what I was thinking, but just wasn't sure. I did send Buzz a message, and said he would get back with me.

Why can't we all carry a Tom around in our back pockets? Drumming would be so much easier...

If there is any score you are having difficulty with I would be happy to break it down and post it in my Pipe Band Drum Score Teaching Materials group.
