    A flam diddle. At least that's how we called them when I learned them.

    Here's an exercise that without the cheeses it's rather trivial. It took me a while to get this clean at 140 bpm.

    Here's the video of me playing if you want to play along.

    Attached is the exercise.

    Ha, because someone, sometime ago called it that and it stuck. Some rudiment and hybrid rudiment names sound like they're played; paradiddle, flam, herta (if you roll the 'r' and squint),etc. while others are named for other reasons. It became a simple way to add a diddle to any flam pattern without saying "add a diddle to that flam pattern". "Add some cheese", or "cheese it" are examples of verbal shorthand.
