The Herta is one of the more commonly known Hybrid Rudiments. Tomas Haake of Meshuggah plays this rudimental variation heavily in their song, “Bleed.” In this lesson, Cameron breaks the pattern down and demonstrates how to incorporate The Herta into your drumming. Keep in mind that the pattern does not always line up to a 4/4 click, as it takes 3 measures to resolve. Try placing The Herta within 16th note patterns. Have fun with this one!
