Here we are looking at a selection of Paradiddle fills played in semiquavers and orchestrated around the kit. Example one shows the basic Paradiddle sticking on the snare. Example two orchestrates the dominant hand ‘down’ the toms. The non-dominant hand remains on the snare drum throughout. Example three orchestrates the dominant hand ‘up’ the toms. Example four starts by traveling down the toms in the first half of the bar and back up again in the second. Example five reverses example four and travels up the toms and then back down. Have fun with these examples and see what fills you can create. For more videos and lessons please subscribe to the Drum Syllabus Series you tube channel:
