The only reason I ask is that the video for this lesson is only 30 seconds long.
And if you watch just that video, you’ll get everything you need to know in order to learn this lick. Really. And it’s a great one. In fact, it was inspired by something I heard Vinnie Colaiuta play on the classic Tom Scott album, Streamlines.
Now, I honestly don’t remember which song I heard it on, but it’s there.
Anyway, I posted a drum solo within a performance of a Gary Husband tune called “Groove Grease” a few weeks ago and this is one of the licks in it.
If you want to watch the full solo, you can go to the post about “Nasty Drum Lick #128” which includes the video of the entire drum solo HERE.
The transcription of “Nasty Drum Lick #129” is here: Nasty Drum Lick 129, and a video of the lick is here:

My favorite rudiment, the paradiddle-diddle!!! I may have to hook up my double pedal again for this one! One I like is great for 5/4 time: Paradiddle-diddle Paradiddle-diddle Paradiddle Paradiddle. You can play crashes on the first note of each diddle rudiment. Man, it’s easier to write out the notes than the words!

HI Joseph –
I LOVE the paradiddle-diddle. One of the most useful rudiments IMO.
Yeah get out the double pedal. I think it’s doable to play this idea with a single, but the more double pedal I play, the more I love how much power and speed you can get when playing just two notes in a row.
Thanks for writing.
