When playing rudiments, it's important to be able to lead with either hand. This helps to even out your hands (while strengthening your weak side) and to play with increased facility around the kit. In the following fun and useful warm-up, paradiddle-diddles are combined with double paradiddles. This pattern is shown on one surface and then applied to the drumset.
Patrick lays down some sweet paradiddle exercises. These grooves are both challenging and sweet.
Patrick continues to pick at the paradiddle this week by throwing in some creatively placed accents. Enjoy the snare version and then move it to the drum set, if you're daring .
