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.
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?
