3/4 Paradiddle Accent Control | Cellular Practice Method


If you missed our introductory post for this practice concept, be sure to read through it here. This practice method is designed to develop the ability to move between any two ideas at will. By focusing 2 ideas at a time, one can speed up the information intake and as a result will see faster progress. The method behind it is very straight forward and simple. One “Cell” is labelled “A” and the other is labelled “B”. Start by practicing all A’s and systematically replace them with B’s. This variation of the sequence is in 3/4 and the sequence is as follows AAA, AAB, ABA , BAA, BBA, ABB, BAB, BBB. It’s a good idea to repeat each part of the sequence as needed before moving on to the next. SYNKD’s proprietary ‘Bar Isolation” function comes in handy here.

3/4 Paradiddle Accent Exercise

This is the first of a three-part series in 3/4 featuring different accent placements for each of the cells. For some of you this will be a bit of a challenge. Take it nice and slow at first. If this is easy for you, feel free to up the tempo and see how fast you can go while maintaining consistent 16th notes and appropriate accent placement.
