    Oh dear ,
    on the plus side ,the first few youtube comments are correct and civil.
     
  6. Actually Steve gallops with just his index and middle.
     
  7. Sorry to be that guy. But a triplet isnt a triplet. It's two sixteenth & an eighth note & I second steve harris playing with only two fingers on his picking hand.

    I had different expectations from the title, so let down.

    My favorite in the comments: "I'm Greg Gall. I don't always play triplets, but when I do, I don't."

    At least he played it like he sang it. Thank goodness there weren't any video cameras around when I had my first beer.

    Sweet! So if I play three whole notes in a row, then that's a triplet! Or if I play three dotted quarter notes, that's a triplet too! All I have to do is play three notes of equivalent lenght, and bada, a triplet!

    If you're looking for frets on a double-bass, I have a feeling that you're going to be looking for a long time. :rollno:
