ABOUT THE RUDIMENT

The basic flam is a foundational pattern that you’ll need to learn in order to play more advanced rudiments. You won’t be able to play the flam accent, flam tap, flamacue, single flammed mill, flam paradiddle, flam paradiddle-diddle, or several other rudiments without first learning the basic flam.
