Double Stroke Accents In A Standard Paradiddle

A lesson on adding double stroke accents to paradiddles.

In this lesson you will be placing accents on double strokes in a standard paradiddle. The same idea has been applied in other rudiments but the paradiddle is a little different as the order the hands play in alternates on each beat of the bar. When working through the patterns below, make sure any accents that fall on a left hand are played at the same volume as those on a right hand.
