40 P.A.S. Standard Rudiments

Rudiment #34

Lesson 25

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.

 

Sticking

llr l R or rrl r L

 

Counting

tk1.t.n.tk2.t.n.tk

or

&a1.e.&.&a2.e.&.&a

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.
