Single Paradiddle Applied Around the Drum-Set

This drum lesson focuses on how to apply the single paradiddle around the drum set.

The single paradiddle is one of the most popular drum rudiments. It is just a combination of single and double strokes. The best way to understand the sticking of the single paradiddle is by just pronouncing the name of the rudiment: pardiddle. "Para" represents the single strokes between the right and left hands, and the "diddle" represents a double stroke. The sticking goes like this: right, left, right, right. After that first sequence of the paradiddle you would now start with the left hand: left, right, left, left, and just continue to alternate between right hand lead and left hand lead.
