Rudiments on Double Pedal

April 19, 2011 2:37 am in Drumset, Marching by Claus Hessler

Transferring rudiments from the hands to the feet is basically nothing really new. A real challenge however can be to work on rudimental passages that also contain double strokes. In the following clip I am trying to transfer a passage from a Basle Drumming tune called "Dr Winschdi" from hands to feet.

Sheet Music for “Another Garryowen”

May 29, 2010 4:47 am in Drumset, Marching by Claus Hessler

Here is the sheet music for the piece. It has some specialties regarding notation that you might not be used to; however I think you can adapt to it pretty fast. The right hand is written above the line, the left hand below. Instead of regular flam notation there is a little line attached to the notehead (‘). A note with the right hand (above the line) having this attachment on the notehead will therefore be a flam “left/right” and vice versa. Got it?
