i am terrible at rolls. ive discovered the problem. my left hand isnt very strong and consequently my rolls are dodgy. anyone got any tips on how to make my left hand stronger?
Do you play kit? Buddy Rich once played a whole gig with only one arm working (broke the other, IIRC). For strength, you could do half your practice with your right hand in your pocket. The standard advice for evenness would be to slow down your roll practice until you can hear the separate strokes and be sure that they are even.
