This exercise serves as a "Part 2" for last week's paradiddle & five-stroke roll exercise. This one is designed to develop the ability to move freely between a roll rudiment and a hand-to-hand sticking rudiment. By using the double paradiddle, we're forced to start each rudiment with both the left and right hands, which ultimately improves dexterity. The end goal is to have the sticking patterns fully ingrained to the point that you start to hear the accents as a melody and can play either of these two rudiments at will.
