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 Triple Strokes Drum Rudiments:
Note: Triple-Strokes are an extension of the “compressed/contracted, closed-textured” Double-Strokes R r L l also used for rolls like R r r L l l R, but can also be “expanded/loosened” into more “opened-texture” rudiments like the Triple Diddle R R R L L, which could be found on the “Triplet-Based Diddle Rudiments” on the Diddles Page, but since the Triple-Stroke R r r is more complex, it takes precedence so I will include it here on this page. However, if the Triple-Stroke exists as grace-note strokes of unspecified Note/Time-value as a Setup to a Principle-Stroke as with the Triple-Stroked 4-stroke Ruff lllR or rrrL, these are included on the Drags & Ruffs 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.
Warning: Triple-Strokes R r r L l l or “expanded/loosened” for an more “opened-texture” as R R R L L L should NOT be confused with Triplets, which is a general term for an artificially-notated Ternary-group of 3 notes in the place of 2 notes, though Triplets can also refer to any 3 strokes such as Alternating-Singles R L R or L R L found on the Rudiments – Singles page, Front-Side Triplets R R L or L L R and Back-Side Triplets R L L or L R R found on the Rudiments – Diddles page.
