Is this a paradiddle?

I think it's probably the accenting that's giving it the sound it has. Too fast for me to make out the subdivisions tho

I'd say it's single stroke rolls with some accents, with some acceleration in singles in six towards the end of the solo, doesn't sound like a paradiddle or a double stroke roll.

My 2c for what it's worth :)

I agree on the single stroke roll.
Listen to it over and over again, break it down into one bite at a time and work on those bits.

Paradiddle & variations are cool patterns, too, of course but they aren't really needed for that specific part.

single strokes accenting mostly a dotted eighth pattern mixed with some straight eighth accents
