32nd Note Runs

Posted: Fri Feb 20, 2015 12:53 pm



I'm trying out for Gold Drum & Bugle Corps bass line, but I'm pretty confused. Extensive google searching and asking my band director hasn't been much help. When it comes to 32nd note runs down the bass line, are those always singled, or doubled? My band director said singled, youtube says doubled. Thank you!

Usually if it's written as 32nd notes you single them, and if they are written as 16th note diddles you double them.

Wow. That's gonna be tough. I have trouble singling 16ths at 180. It's not a timing issue. Just chops really.
Thank you for actually replying by the way!

Definitely disagree with diddling for 4's. Singling will always have better sound quality and will always be easier. Lots of writers will write 4's as diddles on the page as a shorthand since it can keep a score neater and won't elongate measures like writing out every 32nd note ill. Not to mention its faster to write.

Think about playing a 16th note double beat on each hand (RRLL), but overlapping them so the sticking is RLRL.

Don't forget to practice with actual bass mallets, on a vertical surface if possible. The extra weight and orientation will make a huge difference. Otherwise, just keep practicing... you will get there.
Without a metronome its not drumming, its just hacking.
