Inspired by recent social media posts and drum videos from such drumming luminaries as Geoff Clapp, Chad Anderson, George Sluppick, Quincy Davis, Gavin Sorochan, Dan Weiss, Josh Jones, Ted Warren, Conor Guilfoyle, Todd Bishop, Chris Smith and many more...here's my humble contribution to the hive, a simple sticking pattern I came up with and some orchestrations around the drums. It's basically a variation on an old fashioned paradiddlediddle except with a extra note stuck on the end of each grouping, making it two seven-note patterns that alternate between each hand.
Here's what the basic sticking pattern looks like:
Rubim De Toledo and Carsten Rubeling both think it sounds like something Tain would play (I should be so lucky...but I'll take it!) In any event, hope you dig it.
