Rudiments CAN be used for cool sounding stuff. Nasty Lick #49 is proof of that…because really, Nasty Lick #49 is just a Paradiddle – Diddle.
I’ve always loved Gadd’s and Colaiuta’s hi hat licks. My favorites usually included some kind of 32nd note ideas, and they always flowed within a rock solid groove. That’s what I was thinking of when I worked out some of the ideas here using Nasty Lick #49.
Everything here is based on Paradiddle – Diddles (arguably my favorite rudiment), and in the video above, I demonstrate all of the ideas included on the PDF worksheet (downloadable below).
The worksheet has only three voices: hi hat (x’s above the top line), snare drum (second space from the top), and bass drum (bottom space). Here’s the PDF: Nasty Lick 49. Have at it.
Don't miss LEVEL5's next show: 9:30pm on Wed, 2/21/17 at NYC's legendary club, The Bitter End.
