Hey folks, I'm really pleased to launch my new eBook 'The Power Of Paradiddles', available exclusively from my online store:

The book is aimed at more intermediate/advanced players, and features tons of ideas for patterns and grooves using paradiddles, inversions, flams and lots more. Having been working through this material for a number of years and teaching it to a range of students, I've made sure that every example in the book is useful, challenging and above all else, musical!

To celebrate its launch, I'm offering it at a very special price of just £3.99 instead of the regular price of £6.99 for a limited time only.

The book features...

* 58 pages containing over 550 paradiddle exercises

* Sticking patterns showcasing paradiddles and inversions

* Accent patterns to enhance your technique

* Funky bass drum patterns to deepen your groove

* Flam concepts to increase your vocabulary

+ Much more...

Simply head to, click, download and happy practising!!
