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.

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.
