3 AND 6

Hello, I hope all is well in shred land. This week’s lesson is a nice, little, short one but I think it’s still pretty fun. 

We’re once again shedding our double paradiddles (something of an obsession of mine, if you hadn’t realized). I’ll make this short and sweet, it’s a really simple exercise, 8th notes to 16th notes. All 16th notes are double paradiddles (you’ll know which hand to start them with by there being a R or L underneath the music). The manuscript is below and the video explains the rest, so all you have to do is grab your sticks and get to your practice room.
