#13 Steve Smith 5-5-6

This figure is based on a paradiddle variation RLLR-LRRL with 2 added notes RL. RL LR LR RL RL, which if played as 16th notes is a phrase of 5/8. Now odd phrases can be strung together to make very interesting phrases and syncopations in 4/4. Of course this phase of 5/8 works perfectly in 5/8 or 5/4.
