Steve Harris School of Gallopping Triplets, lesson 101
Oh dear ,
on the plus side ,the first few youtube comments are correct and civil.
Actually Steve gallops with just his index and middle.
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.
If you are saying what i think you are saying... there's gonna be trouble a brewin!
That was two days ago... Not so civil anymore... Gotta love the anonymity of the Internets!
I had different expectations from the title, so let down.
Speaking of HOT triplets. It does not get much better than this.
And just like that, this thread went from great to awesome!
My favorite in the comments: "I'm Greg Gall. I don't always play triplets, but﻿ when I do, I don't."
Oh Yeah! He's nearly as good as their double bass dwarf.
At least he played it like he sang it. Thank goodness there weren't any video cameras around when I had my first beer.
"Tho that'th how you find ... thothe firtht two fretth."
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.
