  3. BradFrankDrums.com. Lesson 2 in the Drag Rudiment tutorials. Part 1 showcases a demo song in which I use the snare drum rudiment called The Drag (sometimes mistakenly called a Ruff) around the drum set. I used basic Drags to embellish my fills and time keeping and also used the Drag sticking to inspire new ideas around the kit. Part 2 demonstrates how I came up with the basic 16th note and triplet ideas starting with the basic Drag. Parts 3-4 demonstrate advanced linear and double bass drum ideas.
