DOUBLE BASS RUDIMENTS
Use these fragments of double bass drumming to give yourself the skill to play just about anything.
They can be used to make beats and fills. Learn each phrase with various sticking/footing patterns concentrating mainly on
alternating patterns such as RLRL. The rudiments are all presented in triplet form to be easily repeatable but of course they
can be interpreted in straight 16ths or 32nds as needed. Here is a recording of all of these rudiments being played in order;
first at 120 bpm then at 200bpm.
