Paradiddle Patterns

I am currently working on a hi-quality video lesson depicting several paradiddle patterns that can be used on the drum set. Here are a few arrangements outlined using my own charting style that uses tabs. Pattern 1 utilizes a four-on-the-floor feel with alternating sticking between the hi-hat and snare. Pattern 2 is similar but alternates between the two toms. Pattern 3 is played on the snare and rim. These work at any speed and are a great way to work on three and four-way independence. I use these as intro patterns or fills played over straight time.
