7-stroke roll permutations

I recently had a friend working on rolls, and in asking me some questions about them I realized that he was only playing them exactly as they are written in the 40 PAS rudiments.  To my mind, the numbered rolls are simply an indicator of how many strokes are to be played within a certain amount of space, and should not be limited to the way they are notated on the chart hanging in every percussion studio in the world.  So I whipped up this handy dandy sheet of a few simple permutations of the 7-stroke roll.

Also included are the various styles of notation, which we’ve already covered before.  For less experienced players, I find this more modern style of notation to be a little be clearer in showing how many strokes are intended and where the composer would like those notes to be placed.


  1. This information will greatly help stroke patients, I suffered a massive ischemic stroke, I was forced to give up work after having a stroke, but the medication I used proved there is life after stroke and I decided to share my testimony. It is a misconception that strokes can not be cured or reversed as stated by professionals. I am a living proof that improvement and cure is certain with Herbal Medicine, death from stroke can be defeated. When I had the stroke, I felt trapped inside my body. I knew that everything that was 'me' was still there, but I couldn't communicate. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. With Herbal Medicine, and his recommended healthy diet, I consider myself regaining as much as 99.9% back to my old normal and satisfied. It is in short, an answer to prayer. I'd recommend any stroke patient to contact Dr. Allen for advice and more information with or visit:

  2. IPF has been a surprise and a life-altering challenge. It's unfortunate that I happened to be a victim. I’m nearly 62 years old, and was formally diagnosed three years ago.  I experienced symptoms of breathlessness and persistent coughing. unusual cold especially at bed time. I tried everything possible to break out of that chain but no way. I was told I could only live up to 2-5 years. It was exactly 1 years 7 months after my diagnosis, I stumbled on a live testimony of VITEEN anti-fibrosis  for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). I used it for only 4 months and the positive changes I experienced were so drastic that I went back to work. It's been over 7 years now, I'm still here kicking.  Thanks to Dr. Reign Frank.
