Two single strokes (para) followed by two double strokes (diddle-diddle). Unlike the other paradiddle variations, the Paradiddle-diddle does not usually alternate sticking and is most often played with either the right or left hand leading. Often played with an accented note on the first single stroke.
When played in the form of a triplet, it is also known as "Paradiddle-diddle-Trips".
This rudiment was added to Standard 26 American Drum Rudiments by PAS to form the current list of 40 PAS Rudiments.
