Take the humble drag rudiment:
Note the two grace notes followed by an accent. Now try
playing it with one hand ...
A good technique is to play the two grace notes upwards
in order to facilitate the accented note. Here's a two-bar exercise for
Drags; play with one hand and watch for the twist at the end ...
Finally, let's increase the tempo so the one-handed Drag
is played as a triple bounce (you will have to lose the accent), and go
for the exercise again ...
Tempo: much faster (try the second bar only)
No jokes about drag acts please!
