Paradiddle Diddle With '+' Count Accents

A lesson on adding accents on '+' counts in paradiddle diddles.

In this lesson you will be placing accents on + counts in a paradiddle diddle. The same idea has been applied in other rudiments but different here is the accent falls on the second of two left hand strokes. This is a very uncomfortable movement so start out slow and gradually build up speed.
