Technique by Marcelo Fernandez // September 13 2012

Paradiddles are a common warm up or practice for many drummers in different genres of music. Here are some great exercises for you to practice. It is important that they be played with double kick or a kick pedal/hihat combination. This exercise develops concentration, tempo and coordination when you combine the hands and feet. Start off slow at about 60 bpm and work your way up as you get more comfortable with the exercise.
