Base Five Rudiments

From the practice room this week:

Below are variations of the five, seven, and nine stroke rolls and double drag tap using a ‘base five’ structure. Base Five? Meaning only that they are presented in 5/8 time, but they will be more useful when applied as quintuplets or as five note groupings within duple or triplet structures. They can also be orchestrated around the drumset to add melodic richness.
