An old Steve Gadd pattern from the 80's from what I recall.
I do this exercise every once in a while and was feeling good about it. Watching you do it, I now see some spots where I'm getting the feel wrong. Thank you!
This is a great exercise too. I can't say it's the first I've seen it. This exact exercise was posted by Lindsayanne Artkop here maybe a few months ago. I already got this one down. I like the samba one. I will try double paras over the samba after I get down what you posted. Independence exercises to me are the most fun because the physical part is easy. It's the separation of limbs in the mind where I need the work. Plus I find them fun when I know what I want to play, but can't. That's a challenge that isn't too great for me. So thanks for these, and if you have any more independence exercises, I for one would like to see them.Hello guys thanks for your comments and I am glad you like the video!
Samba ostinato with paradiddles is the basic of independence ostinato, In my opinion there many different ways to play exercises over ostinatos.
I used to play pag 5/6/7 of Stick control over samba - bajon - paradiddle - double paradiddle - double stroke - 4 stroke ostinatos with feet.
Here's another video a little bit more difficult, paradiddles over single paradiddle ostinato.
let me know your thoughts
Love it! This type of groove has been on my mind for a while and I couldn't put it together until I watched your video and transcript. Now I'm off and running with the paradiddles combo and the resulting coordination gains are being cemented in for future permutations.
