We’ve played with the pardiddle-tap sticking in jazz and paradiddle modulation exercises; now we use the pardiddle-tap sticking to create “lick” vocabulary. First, we explore the pardiddle-tap in quintuplet usage and then accelerate that up to thirty-second-notes through the addition of bass drum strokes. I’ve given each pattern four possible orchestrations, but as usual explore and find your own.
