Play-drums: SRC Drum Set Tips

About Applying the SRC Books to Drumset
The SRC books were developed with generic rhythm in mind so that you could apply the rhythmic patterns to drum set in creative ways. When a new rhythm is introduced, the first page is almost always straight rhythm with no flams or rolls. The following are some suggestions I use with my own practicing and with my students.
