Re: Pat Petrillo here!
I now always start my warm ups with the "Diddle Combo" and love the simplicity and endurance building of the "Roll in Rhythm" which I've adapted slightly, adding an extra double to the end of the 17 (making it a 19 I guess) allowing me to swop the leading hand. For some strange reason I find the six stroke roll very difficult leading with my right hand but not with my left. I would have thought it would be the other way round being right handed. One question Pat. Is it natural to experience difficulty getting up to speed on some rudiments and not on others? I can burn up the fives, sevens, drag taps etc but remain sluggish on paradiddles and anything with a flam in it.
