Rudiment of the Week: Triple Ratamaflams

"Rudiment of the Week" will be a weekly special on www.jazzleadsheets.com.  It will be a specific rudiment to work on for each week for all drummers who follow the blog.  These rudiments are selected because they are particularly useful, challenging, or common.

To start it all off...the Triple Ratamaflam:

This is a rudiment that appears all throughout solo's by Philly Joe Jones, Kenny Clarke, Billy Higgins, as well as Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual.  Remember to move it around the drumset to work on flexibility and dexterity.

Keep shedding it and look for another one next week!
