Exercise Notes      DIDDLE RUDIMENTS

The single paradiddle is a must know rudiment for any serious drummer. Its uses and versatility are limited only by your creativity. Notice how the right arm and left arm move up alternately with every 4 sixteenth notes - the roots of this rudiment lie in marching drummers who moved their right hand and foot (and left-hand and foot) together as they marched.

Practice this exercise with and without the accent on the lead of each series of four sixteenth notes. When you feel at ease leading with your right hand, change the sticking pattern, and play LRLL RLRR.
