Here is a compact exercise to bring your doubles around the kit up to speed.

The first half of the line is in triplets.

As with everything, start slow, command it, and then gradually bring it up to speed.

I have reference MP3s for 50 to 100 bpm.

This exercise works best with Custom Rich Sticks. :laughing3:

If you don't like the switch in the exercise above, this one is just triplets.
It moves between two toms and the snare. The accents are important.
Get strong at a slow tempo before moving to the next.
Attachments have references for 90 to 150 bpm, as well as a 90 to 150 metronome.
Have fun.

Thanks for posting these - I am always trying to improve my doubles and leverage them for musical statements on the kit.
