Paradiddle Accents | Cellular Practice Method
THE CELLULAR PRACTICE CONCEPT
If you missed our introductory post for this practice concept, be sure to read through it here.
PARADIDDLE ACCENT EXERCISE
If you've spent any significant time practicing your paradiddles, that accent on the first stroke is probably just as ingrained in your muscle memory as the sticking pattern itself. This is the perfect opportunity to switch things up via the SYNKD Cellular Method. Instead of gridding the accent placement in a traditional 4-2-1 approach, we're progressing through our 10-bar sequence with the accent on the beat ("Cell A") and the accent on the second sixteenth note ("Cell B"). This is a fun one to play through at speed once you become comfortable with the overall exercise.
