how do you do this?
you gotta elaborate more. do you mean with your fingers or with a pick...with your thumb
Strict alternation is one way-
Bold = the downbeats(1-2-3-4)
If I were playing octave triplets(like in my Disco daze), I may use-
In this case, The BOLD = the lower pitched string(& the downbeats).
with your fingers.. i would elaborate more if i know anything about it. i heard it meantioned in a thread not too long ago.
Well, it's not so much about the picking, you just need to know what a triplet is. JimK described it well. The only example I can think of offhand with standout bass triplets is "Toys go winding down" by Primus.
One way to play them is using 3 fingers, like steve harriss form Iron Maiden does.
Just start with your ring finger, then midlle then index. Check out this lesson by steve digiorgio from death
Just an extract to give you an idea of its content:
"Ex. 2 is an example of the "gallop"" using three fingers. Traditionally this is fingered 3-2-1 3-2-1. "
then the follow up lesson: http://dsrmusic.com/metaltab/text/guitarLessons/theLessons/sdigiorgioL2.html
Erk, college bus is here, gotta go sorry!
i do it a couple ways...the 3-2-1 as cited in the example...a more percussive triplet: thumb down, thumb up, finger pop...and a neat thing that bassmonkeee does that i've been working on. i really don't know how to explain that...it's playing triplets with your first two fingers...2-1-1...sounds odd, but it works
here ya go...
