Note:  Drag Rudiments may contain Flams, but since the Drag is another level of complexity they are included on the Drags page instead of here in Flams.  The grace-note and Principle-note of a Flam lR or rL are alternating Single-Strokes L R or R L but they are not found on Single-Strokes page, because here they are “contracted” or “compressed” into a more “closed Texture” into 1 Compound-Stroke instead of a “Para” (pair of) Singles R L or L R.  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-closed Texture.
