**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.
