Paradiddle inversion with bass drum substitutions

Something I was playing around with yesterday, substituting bass drum for some notes of the extremely useful RLLR-LRRL paradiddle inversion. These are good for playing fast. 

The last three patterns don't follow the exact sticking pattern, but they fit in easily with it. Learn all the patterns, then drill them by alternating Ex. 1 with each of the remaining exercises— two beats of each exercise, or four beats. See my other page of velocity patterns in 3/4, too.
