Seems good until the last measure. It just didn't flow with me. Maybe add paradiddles/paradiddlediddles oand accents...???

I really like the double paradiddles, you don't see them nearly enough nowadays. Kind of an old school rudiment. Those inverted Swiss drags piss me off.

Those Swiss drags are in a Nader lick I tried to learn a while ago... They pissed me off even worse then, but I still am not a fan.

I feel like those drags flowed well coming out of the book report. But if you were writing this, what would you substitute those for?

Honestly, it does flow well in that passage. I'm only giving us crap because my hands don't like inverts very much xD I'm working on it.

Alright, just wanted a more experienced drummer's opinion on the writing. Thanks!

I doubt I'm much more experienced xD I mean, there's no point to writing something you can't play, right? I try to write difficult but doable for intermediate level players

Looking at your sig tells me that you are indeed more experienced than a lowly high schooler. And right, if someone can't play something, they probably shouldn't write it. I write this music because I enjoy playing it, and I want others to enjoy it, while I also get the critiquing I need to improve.

Dude, if you're able to hack this out you're at the very least where I was a year ago, and well ahead of where I was 2. Keep it up, because the writing isn't bad. I like what I see :D I'll try to get some of my writing in a presentable form and put it up.
