Rudiments are regarded as the scales of drumming,
the building blocks that can improve technique and facilitate
This worksheet presents several rudiment combinations
(1-6), as well as some co-ordination exercises (7-9). Also, try
placing a bass drum on each pulse. The use of a metronome is important,
particularly with the use of different note groupings (eg. 1/16
notes to 1/16 triplets). Exercise seven is a personal favourite
- try placing it around the kit as feel.
