    what bassist learning drums said. one of the best things to do is either buy a drum rudiment book or find a drum teacher to assign you some. after you learn these rudiments start putting them into your basic playing and the possibilities will become endless

    The next logical step after learning rudiments is to apply them to the kit. It's no good knowing them if you can't make them work.
    You know the basic paradiddle? RLRR, LRLL (R = right hand, L = left hand). Check this out.

    What ever you do make sure you start out slow and ease your way into it , its more important to do it correctly than do it fast . Drumrolls also help to loosen the wrists . Try to keep the tips as close together as possible with out hitting the other stick . Good luck .

    Whatever you do, practice with a metronome. this will help two things, It will help with your timekeeping, without that you have nothing, and you will be able to clearly see your progress.

    Also also practice slowly enough to be relaxed all the time. If you practice tense, you will play tense, if you practice relaxed, you'll play relaxed.
