Cellular Practice - Pataflafla to Swiss Triplet

The Pataflafla is a rudiment that lots of people seem to have a love/hate relationship with and many feel the same way about the Swiss Triplet. We happen to love them both but that appreciation came from methodical practice and application. This exercise is designed to help you become comfortable with both of them independently and together. One key aspect to recognize as you practice these rudiments is that the stickings (absent of the rhythms themselves) are that of a paradiddle-diddle and double stroke roll for the Pataflafla and Swiss Triplet, respectively. Identifying these patterns may help to simplify these two rudiments.
