Note:  On your phone, PDF documents may only open if you choose the “Save, Replace, or Keep Both” option and then it will be downloaded and notify you of this on the top of your screen.  Open it there or in your Downloads folder and it will give you the option to Open with Adobe Acrobat, Drive, or some other PDF app you have installed on your phone.  If you watch the associated video, it will open in another tab/window so that you can easily bounce back & forth between the PDF doc and the video.  If your screen is big enough you can even arrange the windows next to each other!

 

 

Rudimental Chart Collections containing Drags & Ruffs Drum Rudiments:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note:  Drags or Ruffs may contain Flams, like the llR L R rL Ratamaflam, but since the Drags or Ruffs are deeper level of complexity they are included here instead of on the Flams page.  Drags or Ruffs may also contain Singles, Doubles, Triples, or Buzzes, but the reason they are not on those pages is because here they are “compressed/contracted” into a more “closed-texture” as grace-note strokes of an unspecified Note/Time-value that Setup a Principle-Stroke.  For example, R L R L counted 1 e e + _ _ with 1/16-note Triplets is a Single-Stroke 4 on the Singles page, but “compressed/contracted” into rlrL where the L is the Principle-Stroke on count 1 and rlr has to “squeeze” in before the L, makes it a 4-Single-Stroke Ruff found on this page.  The level of complexity and uniqueness of sound has caused others in history to classify them differently, but you really should view them as all related on a spectrum of open-to-closed texture.

 

Main Strokes = Strokes that have a Note/Time-value so they are not grace-note strokes but either the Principle-Stroke they Setup to create a Compound-Stroke or other Simple-Stroke(s) that are part of the Rudiment, e.g., the llR llR L R L Double Ratamacue has 5 Main Strokes.

 

 

Be careful:  As you can see, some people refer to the Drags in this section the same as Ruffs in the last section!
