A lesson on adding crotchet accents to paradiddles.
In this lesson you will be placing accents on numbered counts in a standard paradiddle. The same idea has been applied in other rudiments but the paradiddle is a little different as numbered counts aren't always played with the right hand. When working through the patterns below, make sure any accents that fall on a left hand are played at the same volume as those on a right hand.
Play an accent on beat 1.
Play an accent on beats 1 and 3.
Play an accent on all quarter note counts.
