The basic flam is a foundational pattern 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. It’s essentially a grace note – a lighter stroke – that leads into a full stroke.
