Triple Paradiddle Speed

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.
