#4 Paradiddle, Drag Tap

In this lesson we will morph the single paradiddle to a single drag tap using the collapsing technique. The 8th note doubles are collapsed to 16th notes resulting in a new rudiment (single drag tap) and a new time signature or phrase. The 4 or 2 beat paradiddle becomes a 3 beat drag tap. An understanding of playing 3 beat figures in 4/4 is essential to understanding what I am doing in the video.
