Rudiment Section #22

40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #22

Flam Tap

The Flam Tap (#22 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is based on a Double Stroke Roll sticking where we accent the first of every two notes. Then a grace note is added to the accents. This is a hand-to-hand pattern which means it alternates between starting on the Right Hand and the Left Hand.

 

Sticking

lR r rL l

Notice the Triple Stroke Roll sticking with an accent on each first note (Rrr or Lll) because of the grace note being added.
