Der „Flam“ (englisch - sprich „Fläm“) ist ein amerikanisches Standard-Rudiment für die Snare-Drum und somit eine standardisierte Schlagkombination beider Hände. Ein Flam besteht charakteristisch aus einem Haupt- und Vorschlag die als eine Einheit aufgefasst und annähernd gleichzeitig gespielt werden. Dadurch kann ein relativ kurzer Trommelklang „dicker“ und länger klingen – entsprechend einem psychoakustischem Effekt. Der Abstand und Lautstärkeunterschied beider Schläge ist je nach Stilistik und musikalischem Kontext immer etwas unterschiedlich. Dieses Prinzip kannst du musikalisch auf alle Schlaginstrumente anwenden, also auch ohne Trommelstöcke oder Schlägel, nur mit den Händen gespielt z.B. auf einer Conga, Djembe oder einem Cajon.
Sinn und Ziel: Die Hände müssen für das Unterbewusstsein in einer Grundposition „aufgeräumt“ sein, damit du dich beim schneller Spielen nicht verhakst und jederzeit spontan reagieren kannst und nicht erst womöglich überlegst: "wo bin ich überhaupt". Zudem lernst du effektiv schnell und entspannt von Trommel zu Trommel zu gehen - du wirst mit diesen Übungen sehr flexibel und schnell auf dem Set agieren können, sowohl mit Händen wie Füßen. Neben guter Time wirst du einen guten homogenen Klang entwickeln, der mitreißt. Das liegt auch daran, dass du lernst, mehrere Trommeln gleichzeitig zu spielen, automatisch einen Flam einzubauen und dadurch einen Sinn für einen „fetten“ Sound bekommst. Nebenbei lernst du die für das Groovespiel wichtigen grundlegenden Koordinationen, damit es möglichst fließt. Zur Grundposition gibt es im Tutorial zur Stockhaltung genaue Hinweise.
