Rudiment Section #1

40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #2

Single Stroke 4

The Single Stroke Four (#2 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is a rudiment based on a Single Stroke Roll. We play one 16th note triplet and an 8th note.

This is an incredibly powerful tool we can use to develop control, accuracy and ultimately speed. The Single Stroke 4 is also an excellent basis for all kinds of sprint exercises. And we can use it to get loads of cool ideas on the drums.
