  • Any tips for a beginner with triplets ?

    Are there any basic tunes that a beginner can use to get an idea of what triplets should sound like ?

    Beatles, Come together- the drum fills

    Toto, Rosannah - all over the thing

    Steely Dan, Reelin in the Years main riff and generally a shuffle overall

    zillions

      Oh yeah, those aren't so much for playing but for paying attention to. For learrning, maybe something like Chicago, Color My World.

    Opening riff

    <div class="signaturecontainer">I used to be &quot;with it&quot;, then they changed what &quot;it&quot; was.<br />
    Now, what I'm with isn't &quot;it&quot;, and what's &quot;it&quot; seems weird and scary to me.<br />

      Triplets really are everywhere in music. It may help you more to get the sound in your head first. A really good way to hear the subdivisions is by using words like they do in India with the konokol. Try this:

      Tap your foot 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4
      With each tap say in even syllables "ta-ka-ta"
      So the first syllable "ta" happens when your foot hits the floor on the beat.
      Make sure you give equal length to all three syllables

      Practice saying this a lot and really get that sound in your ears. Try saying it as you listen to a song then.
      You will hear it a lot.

        Interesting.

      Here is an exercise that I created for triad arps as triplets.  You may find it useful to get the feel of triplets under your fingers once you get the speed up a bit.  The patterns repeat in a 5 bar sequence as they move up the fretboard.


      cheers,
