Page of paradiddles


Thanks for posting this, I'll give them a try. I've been playing around with moving the accents on my paradiddles while practicing. It's funny how different they sound at a faster tempo when you do this.

Sweet! I love the exercises and stuff you post, Todd! Keep 'em coming.

My favorite use of the paradiddle as of late is doing the fourth inversion with an accent on the downbeats, so you're actually accenting the 2nd note of the diddle. It makes for some great sticking options while driving the pulse:

Great, thanks for sharing. I also like the double paradiddles, great for fill patterns on the toms.
