These hybrid patterns may not be on the list of 40 standard rudiments, but you should still add them to your repertoire! Juan Carlito Mendoza shares his favorites:
The herta alternates RLR L RLR L and sounds best when you accent the standalone lefts.
The blushda starts with a left handed flam, followed by two 16th notes on the right, and topped off with an accented left.
When you get this one up to speed, it sounds like a train! All you have to do is play a paradiddle (RLRR) and put a flam on the third 16th note.
Arguably one of the best-named rudiments of all time, this is a 5 note pattern (RLRRL) that starts with a flam.
It’s simple sticking, but sounds awesome when sped up. The pattern is RLR LRL with an accent on every left hand.
