This is a breakdown of the hybrid rudiment “Cheese”. I wanted to make a video for the beginner drummer looking to get into hybrid rudiments. This is a way to approach hybrid rudiments by taking baby steps.

This is my version of Benny Grebs crossover 9 fill:-) I chose to play the hi hat foot alone, without the left bass drum. I play it in three tempos; 60 bpm, 80 bpm and 100 bpm.

This is a fill idea I had today. It´s basically a 6-tuplet fill, but with a regular 16th note subdivision. Two groups of six, than a group of four 16th notes. I play it in three different tempos; 80BPM, 100BPM and 120BPM. Have fun! :-)..

This exercise involves Accents, Flams, and Cheese (Diddles). The focus is stick heights and adding in note partials (flams, cheese) to the skeleton each time around..

Playing around with a pattern that I saw on a video with the New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore.

The sticking is easy and can also be used for Latin grooves. Sticking: R-R-L-R-R-L-R-L. Bass drum on the first, third and last R.

A nice little triplet groove that I use for warm-ups. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, so I’ve broken it down here to help anyone interested in working both left and right hands leading in this fill.

Matt Dudley

This is a short fill idea I came up with by pairing the six stroke roll, paradiddle, and paradiddle-diddle. Try it out and see how you can use it.

Geir Johansen

This is an easy fill idea I had. The basic sticking is VVH VVV (The first fill). When I add a flam in the second version the sticking becomes VhVH VhVV (The second fill. And main idea). I play the flam on the toms.
