Cellular Practice - Flam Taps & Displaced Flam Taps
Download PDF • 79KB


This exercise is designed to develop both hand dexterity and pattern displacement. By shifting the flam taps forward by a sixteenth note, we end up with an interesting and more challenging way of practicing the rudiment.

Because of the cellular practice sequence, we explore a variety of options for playing the original and the displaced version. This helps improve flexibility based on context, allowing you to truly internalize the rudiment rather than just playing it.
