: : Just thought i'd try and clear something up. From my understanding, a paraddidles are a drum technique in which you play a series of eighth notes with the sticking pattern: R L R R L R L L.
: : If you were to change that to a slap patern (which sounds relatively cool, when played a little quicker than usual grooves) it'd be like
: : Slap Pluck Slap Slap Pluck Slap Pluck Pluck
: : I hope that helps, god only knows if it did tho.
: : and for people i've told that i'd make a page on slap bass technique, it's almost done.
: : Warren
If you want to use the left hand slap for parradidles just follow Warrens advice and apply it to the left hand. So RT = Right thumb, LS = Left hand slap
a paraddidle would go RT LS RT RT LS RT LS LS. to get the rythym clear in your head it helps to say the word while doing it eg PA RA DID LE PA RA DID LE
RT LS RT RT LS RT LS LS
Hope this helps, keep groovin. C-YA.
