Drummers achieve fantastically rich patterns by alternating feet and hands, so Julie asked the primary question back in 2003: How can string players tap into this? What examples do we already have throughout our thirty-five+ string styles? After listening to hundreds of CDs, she found only a handful from roots music and a few from Western canon. Julie has compiled dozens of paradiddles. These (mostly) asymmetrical patterns help players develop incredible string crossing skills, enable them to spice up their solos, make normal string crossing easy, and command over the upbow equal to the downbow.
