Single Paradiddle InversionsTechnique by Ryan Carver // April 02 2008
These are different ways to play the single paradiddle. Play each seperatley at first. Remember to start slow and play each accent as a full stroke, and each unaccented note as a low stroke. Practice each way until it becomes smooth.
Here is a four bar exercise using the different variations. When you are comfortable, use as a fill voice around the kit.
