Triple Paradiddle Speed

Drum Rudiment Master Class & Rudiment Guide

The triple paradiddle expands on the single paradiddle by adding two sets of singles to its basic shape. Since the single paradiddle is one of the drum rudiments that’s most used for drum set applications, practicing the triple paradiddle will empower you with loads of new options when it comes to creating new ideas based on the single paradiddle. In this free drum lesson, Jared Falk teaches you how to acquire speed with the triple paradiddle while working through different groove and fill ideas. This is a great way to keep you motivated with drum rudiments since you’ll be playing on the drum set and working on applicable and musical patterns.

The triple paradiddle is one of the 40 international drum rudiments since 1984. The Percussive Arts Society (P.A.S.) was responsible for its inclusion as a standard rudiment after settling on the expansion of the 26 drum rudiments with orchestral, drum corps, European, and contemporary drum rudiments. Before going any further with this free drum lesson, we highly recommend that you learn to play the triple paradiddle accurately and on a single surface. To do so, check the free drum lesson on the triple paradiddle that Lionel Duperron put together for you.

Paradiddle-based rudiments are great for improving the drumming motions. They include full strokes, down strokes, up strokes, and tap strokes. Therefore, they’re killer for enhancing your hand-technique fundamentals.

If have already learned to play all other paradiddle-based rudiments, like the double paradiddle and the paradiddle-diddle, we highly encourage you to check the free drum lesson on the dragadiddle #2, next. You see, the dragadiddle #2 is actually a variation of the triple paradiddle. They share the same sticking pattern, only the dragadiddle #2 has doubles instead of singles on the second and forth notes.

    I have a drumming question for you. I am in a church band and we are all a bunch of rookies. Every time the bass player hits a E flat my snares make a very audible ring. I have tried tightening the snares, which helps, but does not stop the buzzing. I also don’t like the way it makes the drum sound when I play. I have also heard of tightening the four lugs near the snare on the rezo head. That did nothing. We built a stage for the drums in the back of the stage thinking that would help, but nothing. I am on the opposite side of the stage as the bass player and his stack. People in the audience have asked me about the buzz so I know its not just the band hearing it.
    Please help us out.
