Rudiment Section #1

40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #3

Single Stroke 7

The Single Stroke Seven (#3 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is a rudiment based on the Single Stroke Roll. It is comprised of two sixteenth note triplets (one sextuplet) and a quarter note.

This one offers us a great incentive to start differentiating between triplets and 16th notes because it can be used equally well in either subdivision. And it offers some great possibilities on the drums.

Rudiment #3

Single Stroke 7

Exercises

 

3a

The first variation is a nice 16th note appication of the SS7.

 

Counting

3b

In the second variation (3b) we go back to playing the SS7 as a sextuplet (a.k.a. two 16th note tripelts). This time we play it in a 3/8. This one is more efficient than the original and also very cool to use a sa fill in a 6/8 groove (Level 1 G6).
