i am having a tricky time with these and i am wondering if anybody can provide any examples of them.
You do understand they are THREE evenly spaced notes/rests in the same time frame as 2 Quarter notes/rests...right?
If you can count-
Try using something like this (or some other variation) for counting a triplet-
1/4 Note Triplet on Beat 1-
1/4 Note Triplet on Beat 2-
1/4 Note Triplet on Beat 3-
Depending on how you sub-divide, the same process can be used for 1/8th note triplets & 1/16th note triplets-
1/8th Note example: lHig-a-Dee2&3&4&l
1/16th Note example: lHig-a-Dee&a2e&a3e&a4e&al
Example of 1/4 Note triplets (Lucas Pickford's transcription of Jaco's "Reza")-
Using a vocalization works well, but I had problems feeling where the notes landed.
The solution I was given was to use a bar in 4/4 of all 1/8th note triplets.
Tap out the triplets, using both hands, on a table top so you can hear it. Start with your right hand on beat one. Keep it going for a while.
Move the left hand to your leg, so you can't hear it.
Your right hand is now doing 1/4 note triplets.
