I play on a 6-piece kit, and lately working on rolls. Can do snare, & 3 toms, but including floor-tom in one long roll is difficult!

Anyone got any tips? And how they approach rolls in general?

I can't think of anything useful that could be said apart from practice. Although, my technique is usually to put all my weight/power into my wrists when doing it.

Practice moving from the lowest tom to the floor tom and build from slow to fast, it's pretty tricky at first, but soon you'll be flying along.

If you are stuck for rolls, try listening to some of your favourite bands and learning some rolls they do, then build on what you learnt, as the technique is the same for playing the rest of the kit, same wrist and hand tech etc.

Yeah, 'tis, but getting there. Slower stuff is fine; just very fast rolls which are harder to pull off when you have to cram everything into the bar at once! haha
