Answer is simply,3 notes per beat=8th triplets,6 notes per beat=16th triplets.Now basic thing is to understand the beat and split it into right pieces.Once again,try 3+3 combi for 16th triplets. -------------------- YoutubeMySpaceWebsiteAlbum "Let It Out" on iTunes and CD Baby Check out my video lessons and instructor board!The Pianist tune is progress,check it out!"ok.. it is great.. :Phave you myspace? Can i to personalize this for you guy?"

Ok, I will.I think that my problem is that I just can't SPLIT the beat in half.But I will force myself to get it.I'm doing great with my new metronome,but a soon as I try it over a BT, I get lost! This is so frustrating, but I'll do my best. Ok, back to practice... This post has been edited by eddiecat: Feb 16 2008, 06:08 PM
