Every time a double is played it will be on a different part of the kit whilst singles remain on the snare.
This lessons is another orchestration idea for the Triple Paradiddle. It is essential that you are familiar with the sticking for this lesson and you may find the exercises easier if you have covered other paradiddle orchestration lessons previously. The orchestration concept used here has also been applied in a similar way to the Standard Paradiddle.
In the orchestration exercises below, you will be played a triple paradiddle on the snare and every time a double is played you will be moving that hand to another part of the kit. In the similar lesson on Single Stroke Triplets I discussed the idea of 'splitting the kit', the same idea can be applied here. Feet have been included all exercises but if you are finding the pattern difficult feel free to remove them.
Remember, you are using a Triple Paradiddle sticking throughout.
- Using the 2 Minute Rule, get all exercises up to a tempo of at least 120bpm.
- Create your own orchestrations using this concept.
- Add various feet patterns to the exercises.
- Apply these orchestrations as fills.
I recomend covering our lesson on Moving Singles with a triple paradiddle next.
