Flamadiddle With '+' Count Accents

A lesson on accenting '+' counts in a flamadiddle.

In this lesson you will be applying '+' count accents at various points in a bar of flamadiddle. This rudiment was already difficult and the accents adds another layer of difficulty to this. You will need to slow this right down while you get comfortable with stick heights around the three levels of dynamics, only start speeding up when you can play the part accurately slowly.

Remember, an accented note is played slightly louder so it stands out from all the other notes. The symbol for an accent is the '<' sign above the note and accents are identified in the sticking with a bold capital letter.
