knittingfrenzy18 5 years ago Hi, I was wondering how I should write a snare drum roll. Should I use 32nd notes, 16th, or even 64th, or something else entirely? Red(just call me that) Comments Reply Ëmänyo Termöpolyán I • Jan 28, 2012 I think it depends on which you prefer: do you want it to sound right or look right? Reply knittingfrenzy18 • Feb 10, 2012 probly sound right. Reply knittingfrenzy18 • Feb 10, 2012 I'm going to be handing this piece to a friend as a sound file that MuseScore plays.

Don't use 64th notes, because that makes it hard to work with as a writer.
