TT04 This week’s ‘Traditional Tuesday’ features the Jim Blackley downbeat/upbeat cycle, this time in 16th notes with paradiddle stickings. These exercises help to develop a phrase-based approach to rudimental patterns.

Q: What is Traditional Tuesday?
A: ‘Traditional Tuesday’ is a collection of improvisations and exercises documenting my practice of traditional grip.
From 1984 to 2009 I played predominantly traditional grip and now I have a regular practice/recording/teaching space I thought It’d be a good opportunity to dust off the cobwebs and get my chops back. It’s also an excuse to work in my mixing filming and editing skills. I hope you enjoy them.
