The Drum Rudiment Encyclopedia, Dictionary, Glossary and A to Z

This Drum Rudiment Encyclopedia contains over 500 Rudiments including Standard Rudiments, Hybrid Rudiments and Others.

It is a constant work in progress. I am gradually working through all the rudiments I know and hope this will eventually become a free online guide to every known rudimental pattern ever!

In order to help you in learning and perfecting these rudiments, I have included easy to read examples, performance tips, free PDF sheet music and video tutorials.

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever.
