Flam Tap

The flam tap is a popular drum rudiment that integrates the basic flam into a double stroke pattern. Practice it along-side the flam accent to come up with some really creative combo-patterns. They can be used within musical drum beats, fills, and even solo patterns.

Flam Tap #1

As you can see, the pattern starts out with a right handed flam and a right handed single stroke. Next, you repeat the pattern with the left hand by playing a left handed flam followed by a left handed single stroke. This double stroke pattern repeats in the second half of the measure.
