Is there a "by the book" way to do doubles, or is this something that different people will simply interpret (and execute) in different ways? I understand that both strokes with each hand should sound the same, but depending on how you do them, they'll feel very different.
Here are the 3 ways of doing doubles I identified:
- 2 exact same strokes in terms of feel (to me this seems ok at lower speeds, but seems limiting (and I might be wrong here) after you reach higher speeds)
- Utilizing the bounce - I guess this would be some sort of hit and then push with fingers right after the bounce
- Push-pull - normal stroke, followed by a second hit that's done with fingers right after the bounce from the first stroke and while your hand is going up (this to me seems like the way to go at higher speeds)
Of course it depends on the situation and the drum kit piece (option 3) might not work best with a floor tom) but is any of these the "standard way" doubles should be practiced? Thanks.
