    Hi Anthony. I really love your paradiddle exercises, I was wondering if they were intended to be purely percussive, as in all ghost notes, or if you're able to play an actual note for each attack (or at least some) ?

    Pardon me.... I just noticed you mention that notes are 'sometimes sounded'....


    I find my left hand is quite tied up doing the "slap", making sounding notes quite difficult.

    Yo Boogie,

    The 'sounded' version of a 'left hand slap' is a 'hammered' note. Like a hammer-on but without the first note. It's still percussive because you're striking the note with your left hand. It just has a pitch.

    peace,
    anthony
