The 26 “traditional” drumming rudiments are the foundation of American rudimental drumming. This collection of rudimental examples and roll charts will aid the learner in mastering the rudimental language. John S. Pratt's early works, now once again available, are an essential part of America's “traditional” drumming heritage. This new edition contains a new foreword and corrected music engravings, and also includes the classic solos “The Sons of Liberty” and “The All-American Emblem.”

Reviews

  • John Pratt's 24-page instructional/pedagogical book contains two large sections: 1. the 26 traditional American drum rudiments (organized by rolls, flams, ruffs, ratamacues, and paradiddles and their associated variations); 2. two rudimental solos: “The Sons of Liberty” and “The All-American Emblem.” Pratt is quite adamant in his preface that these 26 “American” rudiments are the product of the National Association of Rudimental Drummers, and his publication seeks to preserve these American rudiments without denying that other “international” rudiments are currently in use. The two solos are outstanding representations of Pratt's superb rudimental style and would be rated a grade IV difficulty. Either solo would be an excellent contest selection.
