Hey Drummers,

Here we are looking at a paradiddle groove. The humble paradiddle is a bit of a dull rudiment until you start finding ways to apply it to musical situations. This is a really easy and fast way to create a paradiddle groove and start using this rudiment in your music.

The sheet music and video below show three easy steps to build up this pattern. As always, start very slowly and gradually build the speed up. The better you are at playing the paradiddle to begin with, the easier it will be to use it in a drum pattern so take your time with each step.
