We introduced you to the flam in our Special Feature Video Part 8. The flam is one of the 26 drum set rudiments and one of the essential core four. If you’ve previously watched that video and fine-tuned your technique, it’s time to see how these extra little notes can transform your quickly evolving drum fills. If you have not seen SFV Part 8, take a break, go back, and watch. This investment in time will benefit you hugely when trying out the exercises in this lesson and accompanying audio file exercises. The tallest buildings have the deepest foundations.
