When it comes to drumming, there aren’t too many exercises/patterns that not only sound great played as funky grooves but also improve your hand technique massively and offer a wide range of playing possibilities, but the humble paradiddle ticks all of those boxes…and many more! Whether played on a single surface – snare drum, practice pad etc. or whole kit, paradiddles give you a huge arsenal of sounds and ideas that can, with practice, help your playing to sound fresh, funky and exciting!
