Default 40 ESSENTIAL SNARE DRUM RUDIMENTS

Welcome to Drum Rudiment world! There are 40 of The Percussive Arts Society's
Essential Snare Drum Rudiments, and audio play-along files.
Drum Rudiments are one of the most important aspects of drumming. They are the
building blocks to every drum beat, pattern, fill, and solo. Whatever your skill
level is on the drums, practicing your rudiments is a must. Even if you are an
advanced drummer, it’s always good to go over some of the more technical
rudiments.:)

To get started, grab your sticks and a practice pad and select a rudiment from
one of the rudimental families!







Here are 5 promo codes to try it out.

Or even better:
Subscribe to Bill Bachman's www.drumworkout.com - and he has 44 Modern Rudiments You Should Know, not only 40 ;-)
Don't just learn from 'something/someone' - learn from a world-class hand technique specialist.

I think this is not a person decides to
if he has 44 Modern Rudiments
someone else aslo can say the has 50


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum_rudiment

The origin of snare rudiments can be traced back to Swiss mercenaries armed with long polearms. The use of pikes in close formation required a great deal of coordination. The sound of the tabor was used to set the tempo and communicate commands with distinct drumming patterns. These drumming patterns became the basis of the snare drum rudiments.

The first written rudiment goes back to the year 1612 in Basel, Switzerland.[1] The cradle of rudimental drumming is said to be France, where professional drummers became part of the King's honour guard in the 17th and 18th centuries. The craft was perfected during the reign of Napoleon I. Le Rigodon is one of the cornerstones of modern rudimental drumming.[1]

There have been many attempts to formalize a standard list of snare drum rudiments. The National Association of Rudimental Drummers, an organization established to promote rudimental drumming, put forward a list of 13 essential rudiments, and later a second set of 13 to form the original 26. The Percussive Arts Society reorganized the first 26 and added another 14 to form the current 40 International Drum Rudiments.[when?] Currently, the International Association of Traditional Drummers is working to once again promote the original 26 rudiments.[citation needed]

So you have no idea who Bill Bachman is? Not a bad idea to look him up.

It's irrelevant how many rudiments some body picks out as 'standard'.
Bill has identified 12 motions that sum up anything one might ever run into as for hand motion (he calls them 'Gateway Rudiments'). You can create variations and blow them up to 26, 40, 44, 92, 1339, whatever. But... some of those 26/40 standard rudiments might have gotten outdated by now so for someone who's eager to address rudiments and have the maximum benefit there's no real need to stick to those - you can leave a few out and replace them by others.

BTW, I even don't know which 44 rudiments Bill picked out. They're being gradually uploaded on the site I mentioned. The 12 Gateway Rudiments are there already, plus 10 rudiments from Bill's 44 Modern Rudiments... selection. I guess many will be identical with the standard rudiments but I'm curious to see where they differ. And Bill is explaining everything thoroughly.

So... as for the app you're advertising - are there explanations on the technique used? Because simply having someone demonstrate them without any hints on how to execute them properly (least tension, maximum ergonomics) isn't enough. Better to learn just a few rudiments properly than a multifold number of them sloppily as they consist of the same _motions_. (Admittedly, combining those motions creates very different sensation/hand feel and even if you have those motions down, learning rudiments takes some time.)

Wouldn't their long polearms have negated the need for traditional grip? Surely they could just reach over the top of the slung snare drum?

Trus story: the polearms were actually the inspiration for the famous hole riddled cheese.
