“The Rudiment Encyclopedia will be a constant work in progress. I am gradually working through all the rudiments I know and I hope this will eventually become a free online guide to every known rudimental pattern ever!

If you know of a rudiment that is not listed in this encyclopedia, please contact me and help me to keep this educational resource complete.”
