Flam Accent – Hands Separate/Hands Together

The Flam Accent has long been referred to as a “gateway” rudiment since mastering its hand motion opens so many doors technically (just like all of these 12 rudiments on my list).

Stick height control and finger control are crucial, DO NOT stiffen up on the low end.
