    Hi, I’m learning xylophone and really pleased I found this site, really well set up and properly inspiring! seems marimba is much easier to find info on, and hopefully quite transferable? I’ve a question about 2 mallet single note rolls-should the mallets alternately hit the centre of the note or is it ok to stagger the mallets and hit off of centre? The latter making for an easier faster roll for a beginner-don’t wan’t to be picking up any bad habits though. Any thoughts on this?
