Step 17 – Paradiddle (Huck, ga-dick)

Paradiddle: You really can’t go without this rudiment & its inherent “huck-ga-dick” hand motion. One doesn’t simply play a stream of paradiddles in order to impress their Mom when shes see the sticking go back and forth, it’s generally a matter of logistics–setting up a different hand for an accent. The super fast downstroke to “drop-catch” (low alley-oop) diddle motion will come in handy far beyond the paradiddle itself.
