Your so relaxed! If I turn off the sound you could be playing along to a mellow ballad. Nice playing!

Nice groove again, Richard! I like the fill at the last 7/4 bar of the four-bar phrase starting here:

Code:
|1.....2.....3.....4.....5.....6.....7.....|1...
|............................L.............|.... TT1
                                  >
|......L......................RLLRLRRLLL...|.... SD
|.................L.LL..L.LLR..............|.... TT2
|................R.R...R.R.................|.... FT
|.........o.....o.....o.....o..............|o... KICK
                                        ^^^
                                        \\\______????

For some reason I can't get the fill to meet the next '1'. I fall three sextuplets short. What am I missing? Thanks

Hi there again, thanks for your kind words. So I'm a big fan of parradiddle fiddles. Or at least they're comfortable for me. Basically, if I'm correct, the fill is made up of four parradiddlediddles with bass single drums in between the first and second. It starts on the last two notes of the triplets in beat 3 and goes RLRRLLB RLRRLLB RLRRLL RLRRLL. THE VOICING (oops I yelled) is the first two PDDls R=floor tom L= tom2 the RL on tom 2 and 1 the rest are on the snare. Pretty sure anyway. Try that and let me know. I wasn't thinking of it in the moment, just trying to do something that sounded ok and not get lost. Happy during. PS you can get mileage by playing the stockings your good at then stick in 1 or 2 kicks and voila, nice sounding and fresher sounding rudiments.

Ok, here's what I have from your comments:

Code:
|1.....2.....3.....4.....5.....6.....7.....|1...
|...............................L..........|.... TT1
                                     >>
|......L.........................RRLLRLRRLL|.... SD
|.................L..LL..L..LL.R...........|.... TT2
|................R.RR...R.RR...............|.... FT
|.........o.....o......o......o............|o... KICK
                       ^      ^      ^^
                       |      |       added an accent to fall on '7'
                        \______\__ now these don't fall on the '&'

If this is correct - and it seems it is - then it appears the following exercises are needed to build up to this:

Code:
|1.....2.....3.....4.....|
|..L..L..L..L..L..L..L..L|
|.R.RR..R.RR..R.RR..R.RR.|
|o.....o.....o.....o.....|

|1.....2.....3.....4.....|
|L..L..L..L..L..L..L..L..|
|..R.RR..R.RR..R.RR..R.RR|
|.o.....o.....o.....o....|

|1.....2.....3.....4.....|
|..LL..LL...L..LL..LL...L|
|RR...R..RR..RR...R..RR..|
|....o.....o.....o.....o.|

|1.....2.....3.....4.....|
|L..LL..LL...L..LL..LL...|
|.RR...R..RR..RR...R..RR.|
|.....o.....o.....o.....o|

Or treat it as a two and half quarter note fill + the familiar RLRRLLRLRRLL:

|1.....2.....3.....4.....|1
|......L.................|
|...........L..LL..L..LL.|
|..........R.RR...R.RR...|
|.........o......o......o|o

I'm not great at reading drum tab but looks right. The accent is on the right I believe. Does that make sense?

Yes indeed. I also like rlrllb as a series or rlrrllbb or rlrllb there really are endless combos.

I'm blown away by your relaxed vibe that belies the energy in your delivery. Sprinkle a ton of chops skill and wonderfully precise phrasing into the mix, and the result is just superb🙌 I wish I had your hands!

Only one tiny criticism - There's a bit too much low end mud in the two lower toms, and that prominence skews the kit balance a bit. Perhaps consider scooping those lows a touch to clean it up. The only reason I'm mentioning this is that everything else is so damn fabulous!

I thought so too. The 12" tom is like a separate concert hall by itself. Just a bit to much gain on that one? Anyway, I'm glad someone had the courage to speak up. LOL
