I am looking for exercises and licks that HS and college players play when hacking with each other. Fun stuff that is generally on the shorter side. I'm not looking for full show movements. Snare features are OK, but I would prefer pieces that are similar to the list above.

Also the pieces don't need to be really advanced and if they are available via transcription it would be best. I know most people can't afford to throw down hundreds of dollars for a few pages of snare sheet music.

Thanks for the input so far!

The Rhythm X 2010 book is killer, especially the opener!

Sorry, I guess I should be more specific. I looking for exercises and short licks... in other words, NOT show music.

Things like Bloo Rolls, Lion King Lick and Twitch were good examples.

Vortex, though a bit lengthy, is a really cool warm-up.

So far the list is:

Ditty
Cheesy Poofs
Flams 1-2-3
flam I am
Bloo Rolls
Lion King lick
Twitch
Vortex

I was just wondering what most HS and College snare drummers play when they are just hacking around with each other(besides full segments of DCI shows). When I was in HS we never played full segments of shows... we did played short features.

Flammus is easily one of my favorite exercises.
SCV stick control
Rhythm x Hatchet is a fun flam exercise, but you'll have to buy that one.
MCM 2011 opener is a really simple but fun one
BD flams is a popular one too
Rhythm x loose is a great warm up too

EDIT* I just read your message about what you're looking for. MCM 2011 is pretty short and very simple, the hardest part is getting it up to tempo. It's not very much for a "whole show segment" If you want the RX exercises you have to buy them, which is not what you're looking for, but they can be transcribed easily which is what my friends and I did.

With your extensive experience I'm super surprised you don't know of any to add to the list. Are you saying you never played Ditty, Cheesy Poofs or something similar with your friends?

Thanks... I was just thinking how much I would have appreciated this when I was in HS.

So... Apparently some stuff that is almost 30 years old is still considered illegal trading on the site. And even videos without sheet music from YouTube are considered illegal trading too. I guess I'm not even allowed to reference Vortex as a good piece to learn because that was deleted from my list. What a load of horse ****.

If I deleted a video link, I apologize. The sheet music, especially anything from Murray Gusseck or Jim Casella or published and for sale, at any point, is a no go.

Feel free to repost the video links.
