Rudiment Section #34
40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments
Lesson 25 (#34 of the 40 P.A.S. certified essential or standard rudiments) is a rudiment which combines an unaccented Drag with a 16th note and an accented 8th note.

As with any Drag rudiment, how you would count this depends greatly on the tempo. Thinking of 16th notes and doubling up the last 16th note to 32nd notes at a tempo of quarter note = 60 bpm is a good starting point.
When played up to speed this becomes a Single Stroke group of 4 with an accent on the third note and its 4th note doubled up to 32nd notes.
Lesson continues after this
In this exercise we combine two Drags in 8th notes and a Lessons 25. We change the sticking after each combination.
Now we combine one Drag and a Lesson 25 in 6/8. Again we change hands after each combination.
