Kirby's Rudiments - The Waltz

Kirby's Rudiments - The Waltz

Adding to my rudimental presentations, here is another personal fav entitled “Waltz.” This one has three variations. These are also useful to play on the drum set, especially going around the toms and between the snare and bass drum and substituting one hand for the pedal. Try it!

Always start slow and play each exercise several times before proceeding to the next. Don’t forget to perform this and all rudiments at soft, medium and loud volumes. 

Have fun and remember to lock it in the pocket.
