FWIW, I count them as 16ths (1e&uh, 2e&uh) but say Paradidlle, Paradiddle....Any suggestions with counting it differently? I think that is where the secrets hide usually.
By the time you can play a paradiddle fast enough that internalizing 16th notes is holding you back, I don't think you are at a point you need to worry about how to count paradiddles.No problems with keeping them straight or anything, and I don't want to count (internally) all 16s anymore because why? plus can't go very fast counting that way.
Thanks or the kind words. The key is technique, most people practice "wrong" and continue to struggle no matter how many hours they put in. When you play stuff the most effective way then the musicality, consistency, flow & speed come naturally.my god that was clean. Great playing
