Here are a couple of licks I’ve been having fun with lately. They’re based in sextuplets with some commonly used stickings. Ex. 1 uses what is usually called a 6-stroke-roll sticking. And Ex. 3 uses the double paradiddle sticking. The other examples replace one of the right-handed double-strokes in each of these with a bass drum double stroke. Start slow and keep them rhythmically even.
