Pad Lesson #4

"Here’s a little athletic paradiddle workout to increase speed and to strengthen the weaker hand. It’s recommendable to learn the melody first before filling the space between the accents with paradiddle groupings as written." - Christin Neddens

Pad Lesson #6

"Here’s a new quintuplet workout which combines groups of 2, 3, 4 and 5 in 2-3 and 3-2 in one hand with a constant pattern in the other hand. It’s all based on 16th-note-quintuplets, lead by the right hand first, followed by the left-hand-lead in the second round. It definitely strengthens your coordination skills, your subdivision- and precision comprehension. Try to avoid flams and focus the unison in the relevant spots." - Christin Neddens

In this clip Christin uses the Concert HD1 model and the 6" and 12" Practice Pad.
