Here’s an exercise I thought of today when a student kept combining a paradiddle with a double paradiddle on accident. It involves combining the three most popular 6-note stickings. Try playing it without any accents, with accents on the first note of each grouping of 6, and flamming the first note of each grouping. This is pretty brutal when you speed it up, because some of the permutations toward the end flip-flop in very weird places.

The three stickings are at the top, labeled and they have an abbreviation in parenthesis. You can find that parenthesis above the stickings in each of the 6 exercises to help you identify the sticking quicker. Have fun!
