For decades there has been a need for an updated list of rudiments. I’m a pretty motivated do-it-yourselfer so I made a list, ran it by over 1000 rudimental “pro’s” for feedback, and now here’s my final list of 44 modern rudiments you need to know!
You really need to know all of these if you want to be well versed with contemporary vocabulary and have any chance of making it in the competitive rudimental world. If you have no interest in the competitive rudimental scene, that’s totally cool, mastering these rudiments will simply leave you with vastly improved hands—you just can’t lose!
There’s been talk of a major poster project with this list to reach the masses, but for now I’ll start it here on www.drumworkout.com. Very soon I’ll have them neatly listed and notated for you and I’ll be adding workout videos for each one down the list as we go. Your hands will thank you.
