There are few rhythms that cause people more confusion than the quarter note triplet. “How are there three quarter notes in two beats?” “What is the bracket for?” In this tutorial I will show you how to count the quarter note triplet.
Mistaught quarter note triplets
This rhythm is often mistaught by having people say a phrase to estimate how to interpret it. NOPE. Don’t do that! You need to actually subdivide the rhythm in order to master it once and for all.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to subdivide and count this challenging rhythm. Then we’ll practice a few exercises together. In less than 10 minutes, you can be a rhythm boss. (You’re welcome!)
