a lick that was very popular in the early 70's.
as does Dave Weckl.
Here's how they are played, and how they are usually written in 16th note pulsation form— a Stewart Copeland-like thing is to play these on the hihat:
Paradiddles — first inversion
all over this performance, which basically defined modern fusion drumming— just move your right hand to the cymbal or hihat, and add bass drum. You can also mix up the accents between the two single notes. Useful for sambas.
This very old-fashioned rudimental flourish happens to be very good for getting your shuffles together.
Continued after the break:
Flam accent #1
Three Camps, it's also a foundational solo idea:
play fast as a solo idea, the paradiddle-diddle is a little more plain than its saucy bastard sister the 6 stroke roll. By displacing it and moving your right hand to the cymbal, you have the beginning of linear comping within a swing feel. You can build a meter-within-meter thing in uptempo jazz off of it.
