The Four Limb Paradiddle Workout Vol. 1

1.99

From beginner to intermediate, 11 pages (57 exercises). This lesson utilizes a paradiddle sticking on the drum set that you use with every exercise. The exercises change up the foot patterns and help you develop coordination, speed, and control around the drum set. The exercises include patterns using whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, and eighth notes. It is a very functional approach to improving four way coordination while also being able to focus on your dynamics and speed.   Video examples of all exercises are included on private links in the PDF packet. email me at charlieengen@gmail.com with any questions or if you would like more info on this lesson!

This lesson is designed for beginners up to intermediate players. It utilizes a paradiddle sticking around the kit that you use with every exercise, with each exercise changing the patterns in your feet. I have used this approach to coordination with the four limbs with all of my students. It is a great way to improve your speed around the kit and your coordination at the same time. 

Video links of the examples are included as private links in the PDF document. You can only access these videos with that exact link. I started off as basic as I could so that if you are new to this sort of four limb movement, you can start from the easiest exercises and work your way up through the pages. Even experienced players can get something out of this as the combinations at faster speeds are quite challenging and allow you to focus on dynamics and stroke clarity.

This is volume one that will help you develop the coordination and smooth out your hands, as well as your speed. Volume two will focus on practical applications around the kit with fills, grooves, and some other exercises that ramp it up a bit more! Feel free to message me with any questions.
