Rudimental Grooves – Volume 1

Have you always wanted to know how to integrate rudiments like paradiddles, five stroke rolls, six stroke rolls, seven stroke rolls, nine stroke rolls, eleven stroke rolls etc. into grooves, in a practical, cool and effective way? Well, then you’ve come to the right place!

The main focus lies on the groove aspect and is mostly based on the backbeat of 2 and 4 which makes the exercises very applicable in terms of popular grooves -- be it as the groove itself, a groove variation or as a fill.

The starting point of the modular groove concept is mainly paradiddles, both as binary(volume 1) and ternary subdivisions(volume 2). The book is best suited for those who have at least mastered the most common paradiddles and rolls. So, take it easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy: You don’t have to have all 40+ rudiments under your belt.

The first step is a relatively simple paradiddle groove workout that teaches you how to incorporate many different paradiddle stickings into a basic groove. Later down the road, I’ll show you step by step how to transform those paradiddle patterns into even more dope grooves.

Volume 1 will be dealing with 16th-grooves combined with 32nd-notes. Volume 2 continues with the same concept and deals with 8th-note-triplet-grooves combined with 16th-triplet notes/sextuplets, until they get quite dense and complex.

If you have a serious interest in becoming a rudimental groove ninja: What are you waiting for? Let your groove journey into unimagined and exciting rhythm realms begin!
