    Default Rudiments

    I'm just curious as to what everybody's favourite drum rudament is. Paradiddle, double stroke, triplet, flam, etc.
    I also kind of want to learn more rudaments. So just list a couple that haven't been mentioned and we'll see how many we can get!

    first off, for your info, they're Rudiments. (not trying to be arrogant and rude, just letting you know)

    As for the rudiments, I usually use most of the "diddle" rudiments to warm up. Usually singles, move to doubles, triples, then add flamadiddles, accents, and add a few more things until i usually end up coming up with a "new" rudiment. I'm always eager to learn more rudiments, and i'm now concentrating on my roll/drag-based rudiments, ratamacue, double ratamacue, etc, etc.

    Yeah, I knew I had the spelling wrong there, just wasn't entirely sure where the mistake was. Thanks.
    And how does a Ratamacue work?

    I like to warm up with paradiddle, double paradiddle, triple paradiddle, played hand-to-hand from slow to fast. It's somewhat of a challenge at high speed.

    I also like to do flam paradiddles and double stroke rolls where you accent the second note of the double.
