Inverted Paradiddle With 'a' Count Accents

A lesson on adding 'a' count accents to inverted paradiddles.

In this lesson you will be placing accents on 'a' counts in an inverted paradiddle. The same idea has been applied in other rudiments but the paradiddle is a little different as 'a' counts aren't always played with the same hand. 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.
