Paradiddles on the guitar

Let’s transfer this paradiddle idea to the guitar.


Choose two notes from any scale. One note will represent the left hand from the paradiddle in the last post. The other will represent the right hand.

Here’s the “para” using an E and a G.

para - two notes alternating



And here’s the diddle.



The entire paradiddle looks like this.

Making it random

Try taking each two-note unit of the paradiddle and mix them randomly.

Of course, you can stretch it out and use more than two notes. If you do, then you’ll need to maintain one of the two pitches that you start with. If you don’t, you’ll lose the paradiddle idea.
