A simple orchestration of the flam accent designed to get your hands moving around the kit in set blocks.
In this flam accent orchestration the rudiment will be moved around the kit in six note blocks, meaning you will switch voice on the three count mid way through the bar. This is a nice easy way of getting the rudiment moving around the kit in simple groupings. Similar movements have been covered for other rudiments (without the grace note!) and some of these have been linked at the bottom of the page.
Remember, you hands will always be playing a flam accent in all exercises.I have included feet in all exercises, it may be worth removing them whilst you are learning the orchestration then adding them back in later. Experiment with using different feet patterns from our previous lessons.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all exercises up to a tempo of at least 120bpm.
- Create your own orchestrations using this concept.
- Use as many different feet patterns as you can think of with each exercise.
