    Hey paradiddle,

    I was browsing around a tab site and ran into this. Are YOU the drummer the transcriber was talking about by chance, that called the intro to meanstreet a "paradiddle" here?

    No huge deal, but I thought to myself "Hey self", "what a coinkydink that would be!" [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I doubt that's him because they said MeanStreetS. Para would know better than that. At least I would hope so. Out.

    I believe I remember p. diddle saying once that "paradiddle" is a drummin' term and that lrll rlrr or whatever he had (has?) for a signature was what a paradiddle is.

    Hey guys, sorry I've been such a slave to the man lately.

    No, I didn't do that particular transcription, and I'm not so sure it's an actual paradiddle Eddie's doing on Mean Streets. However, what he is doing could be a type of paradiddle that has been altered to make up that particular rhythm.

    A paradiddle is a drum rudiment that is very common in many drummer's styles. It quite easy and very adapable to various instruments, which is why it's so popular. Simply, it is Right Left Right Right, Left Right Left Left, or RLRR LRLL. Pretty soon you get real fast.

    You can also rearrange it into other rudiments, which is basically what Ed's doing. For example a paradiddlediddle is RLRRLL LRLLRR. Same concept of doubling one hand and alternating to do the same with the other.

    Ed is well known to be a rhythmic genius, so by alternating his slapping between hands it becomes a sycopated, pararhythmic intro, which sounds really fucking cool!

    Hope this helps...

    HA! Now try explaining what a "flamadiddle" is!

    I think it's something only drummers can understand.
