40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #25

Single Flammed Mill

The Single Flammed Mill is another rudiment (#25 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) which is based on the Single Paradiddle sticking. This time the third inversion is used. The sticking is RrlrLlrl. 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.

The Windmill

The ‘Mill’ part in the name is derived from ‘Windmill’ which is (was) the unofficial name of the third inversion of the Single Paradiddle.

Sticking

RrlrLlrl

 

The quality of a well executed Windmill is all about the downstroke we begin this pattern with.

Rudiment #25

Single Flammed Mill

Exercises

 

25a

Similar to exercise #24a this is a Single Flammed Mill and Flam Tap combination exercise. We play three Single Flammed Mills and two Flam Taps after which it alternates sides.

These types of exercises are awesome! These are great for developing control over rudiments, both physically and musically. As a bonus you get to practice both sides equally. Not just from a physical point of view. It’s even more beneficial to your playing from a coordination point of view.
