This lesson features a very special guest instructor. Matt Dudley is the mastermind, voice and elbow grease behind the awesome Behind The Kit podcast. A drummer and educator based out of Whiteville, NC, he’s often found teaching drumlines in that area. Today, Matt brings us his 4-3-2 exercise for developing accents, flams and diddles!
