Paradiddle Grooves Hand/Foot Combinations: Part II

In the following exercises the double paradiddle will be played as 1/16 note triplets between the floor tom and bass drum, starting with the bass drum. The remaining hand will play various hi-hat patterns with a 2 and 4 snare backbeat. Remember to start slow, count, and practice each part separately first.
