Someone *coughyourstrulycough* is going to be a timpanist pretty soon.
...And I'm worried. I cannot cheat my way out of a drum roll by letting the sticks bounce on the head anymore. Timpani mallets are soft, so we can rule out the bouncing.
I need help doing proper, clean-sounding single-stroke rolls. I fear the exhaustion this will bring. Anyone know any guidelines for this? Wrist techniques, etc.? It'll be much appreciated!
