This time around we’re going to work on building coordination and endurance between one hand and one foot. All drumming revolves around singles, doubles, and paradiddles. It’s important to practice those rudiments by mixing them together using various combinations of one hand, one foot, and some imagination. Here are some patterns that will get your limbs working independently. They also make for some great fills. Go for it!
