D D-flat D-sharp D-sub, d-connector D. Decrescendo Decrescendo or decresc. They are the accepted standard in the performance of the basic rhythmic patterns that comprise many of the rhythmic patterns found in the common compositions in Western music.

Rudiments are used as exercises for performers to practice and hone their technical skills. All rudiments have very specific sticking patterns, or the order in which sticks right-hand or left-hand are used to strike the drum. Typically in the performance of rudiments, the pattern is started slowly or open in strict rhythm and then is gradually sped up to where the patterns become very fast close and then gradually slowed to the original starting speed or open.

Rudiments were often named after their sound, which accounts for some of the odd names. Rudiments have a rich history that is tied directly to the development of the snare drum, known earlier as a side drum or military drum.

The Swiss were the first to clearly document the use drums to signal troops in battle. The Battle of Sempach in was the first recorded use of fifes and drums as signals by the Swiss in a military campaign. By the early 15th century, many elite Swiss fighting forces were employed throughout Western Europe as mercenaries. Baron Friedrich von Stuben, working for the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in , wrote " Regulations " which specified drum signals for the Revolutionary Troops.

The first use of the term rudiment was by Charles Stewart Ashworth. He used the term to classify a group of drum patterns, thus establishing himself as the father of rudimental drumming. It was about this time that the American Legion began organizing national contests for Drum and Bugle Corps, but there were problems with these competitions because of the differences between the rudiments published over the past century.

Spearheaded by the American Legion and the Ludwig Drum Company, the most influential drum instructors from across the country came together at the American Legion National Convention in Chicago and created set of 26 rudiments. Membership in NARD required a performance test on the 13 essential rudiments. The 13 additional rudiments of the 26 were not required to be performed.

Aside from the 40 standard rudiments, there are a growing number of rudiments that are used in conjunction with Drum and Bugle Corps competitions. These rudiments tend to be combined patterns and some of more complex rhythms used in drum cadences unique to Drum and Bugle Corps.
