Applying Flams to Rock Drum Set

Use your imagination and apply flams to the drum set. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Continuous Snare

You can use flams to play continuous notes on the snare. Play flams on your snare but move the primary note of the flam to another instrument like a tom, hi-hat, or crash. Optionally, you can back up a hi-hat or crash stroke with the bass.
