i'm a big fan of the american six stroke roll RllrrL RllrrL (the capitals indicate accents) but also im a big fan of quads and inverted quads, which are hand foot ideas, and swiss army triplets are lovely too, but erm my favourite is american six stroke roll with the accents on the cymbals and bass drum with the cymbals too ( Gadd uses it alot)
im 17 soon to turn 18, ive been drumming for nearly 7 years! i don't really have a life out side drumming and i practice about 4 hours a day.

My favorite rudiments are paraddidles.
I great paradiddle practice is 4 singles, then 3 doubles, then 3 triples, then a double again, brings you back onto your opposite hand to repeat the pattern.

I also like RLRRLL and LRLLRR, cant remember if they have a name.

The pattern RLRRLL LRLLRR is one of my fav's too. It's called a Paradiddle-diddle

Flam drags are a good workout and fun to throw in sometimes.

Do a lot of drags as well. Of course we all do double stroke and single stroke rolls. Lots of flams, Inverted flam taps and a good one that will mess with your head.

I don't think I have a favorite, they each have their own flavor, and I'm the cook.

My favorite rudiments are lesson 25, and 6 stroke roll. I love playing either one of them on a really high pitched drum. It sounds so sick.

A parididdle, and/or a double paradiddle. I lean on these when warming up.

I forgot about the 6 stroke roll :oops:
I use it most when it comes to playing a fill or something like that :)

It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.
