Here’s a new combination: two bass drum notes, followed by six notes on the toms as singles (low to high, three on the floor tom and three on the high tom–a Max Roach idea) and finally followed by a paradiddle-diddle on the snare.
The pattern is 14 notes long and when it repeats as 32nd notes, the phrasing sounds interesting and different.
Here is a worksheet with a 6 different phrasings of the idea (the illustration above shows the lick over two measures, and is #4 on the worksheet).
Have at it!
