Hybrid Rudiments for drums

Hybrid are ‘unofficial’ rudiments not listed in Pas (Percussive arts society) 40 fundamental rudiments list compiled by PAS International Drum Rudiment Committee. Usually are created combining the official rudiments in new way and sticking patterns. There’s no official list of this rudiments and new hybrids are constantly added, but there are some good list accepted by drummers community.

1. A foundamental source is this article by Joel Smales, published in April 2005 on Pas magazine: Hybrid snare drums rudiments (.pdf file) (see that scan is not so good, but readable).

2. The best educational page is on Vic Firth site, with scores and video lesson: Vic Firth Hybrid Rudiments Series

3. A good ‘social’ list is is the 128 hybrid rudiments book (.pdf file) originally posted on a thread of Drumlines.org: from Egg Beaters to Flive-a-diddle, from Irish five to Cheese-Cha. The complete list of rudiments in the book is at the end of this post.
The .pdf file is downloadable also at ‘unofficial’ (and probably not updated) locations on wadrumline.org and here

4. Another good and free downloadable collection of hybrid is on cyclopspercussion.com.
Another good page of hybrids is here
