This is awesome Muris - I will definitely practice this one! Could proove to be a good vibrato exercis as well.
Excellent exercise, those simplest are the best
Intresting exercise Muris, tho my fingers are gonna be on fire towards the end
Good to hear the contrast in the guitar rythym as you progress through the lesson.
Just what I need right now! I can never get those quarter note triplets so sound equally, so I gonna work hard on this one.
Useful for primer as a warm up exercise too!
Shellshock got a good tip to get your timing on the 1/4 note triplets.
Instead of counting 1,2,3 try saying the word 'evenly' and play the string on each syllable i.e.
E - ven - ly
1 - 2 - 3
Works for me
Fantastic idea for a lesson, I will add this one to my long routine
Brilliant Muris- well explained An essential lesson for all.
Very nice excercise , I really need to work on this one. I think Eddie will be very happy when he watch this one. Thanks Muris.
Excellent job Muris, very usefull and different.
great stuff bro
Nice idea Muris. Great lesson
Excellent!! Really interesting!
Thank you guys!!
I hope this lesson will clear some timing issues after all
Excellent lesson Muris !! Very good !
great lesson Muris
Nice job. Very helpful
Wot no 32th Triplets
Only kidding! This is another great lesson for me...
Great work Muris!
nice lesson brother.good work
Cool, you are so creative man
Why not 32th triplets?
Actually,I started this lesson as beginner one so I guess even 32th are too much
but anyhow,let it be
Yes, brilliant and very useful!
Thank you Muris, I promise, I'll spend more time here!
Thanks Muris for the lesson. MANY more lessons on timing and syncronicity would be much welcomed! It is the most critical element in becoming more than just a average musician in my humble opinion.
Just Great.This is something i wondered about for awhile and this was just an excellent lesson to explain time.
Ahhhhhhhhh I SEE HOW IT IS NOW.....This lesson is for me..isnt it,,,its ok i can take a hint...lol just kidding lol .......I am so in need of timeing with solos...but if this is a beginner lesson im going to need more picks cause when we get up to the 10000ths tripplets i have a feeling just 1 pick wont do....lol......great lesson as allways
Hy Muris! Thank you so very much
for doing this lesson I requested.
This is going to be sooo helpful!
And I'm really happy that all GMCers agree!
BTW, I received your pick today!
Sorry, I'm not going to frame it,
I'm going to use it!
Thank you once again, I'm going to work
on this one for a long time!
Thank you once again, it's amazing,
exactly what I hoped for...
Glad you like it guys,specially Eddie
This is awesome. I've had some minor problems with playing 16th triplets, but I think this is going to help me figure them out. Thanks again for a great lesson Muris
What no 64th notes? Just kidding, that was great Muris =)
Man... This one's SOOO GOOD!
It's simply AWESOME!
great lesson !!! Timing is really important in our playing, and this lesson is a great way to practise it !!!
Easy to hear the difference!
But to feel it while playing, specially triplets,
man... that's another story!
This is gonna take ages!
This is an awesome lesson.
It definitely is!
dude I dont get this 4th triplets.I mean how do we play it?cant figure out where the click suppose to be at..
ok no tricks I guess just the beat is different each time in your video but I was listening on gp5 and metronome is aiways on 70 with the same beat so I was like what the hell goin on here:)ok no tricks then,thanks.
4th triplets ARE hardest to get,specially in bars like 4/4 etc.
You have to play 3 notes in 2 beats,or 6 notes in whole bar.
I tried to show it easier and so matched drums and bass to play same triplets.
Leaving it on regular 8th or 4th would be really hard for you guys.
hmm so 3 notes in 2 beats it is.ok thanks bunch I knew something was odd:)
great lesson Muris!!!
This is great. Some people might also find this technique helpful in working on their timing, especially in combination with this lesson:
Very helpful lesson. Can't quite count the 32th notes, but I'll slow it down...I'll get the feel eventually.
That's 8 notes per beat,slow for the start,yeah.
Thanks. Yeah, I got the 8 notes per beat, I just literally can't count it at the slowest speed.(lol) I'm using Guiter Pro to slow it down...I'll get it.
Fingers crossed,you'll get it.
I am glad you put the link in answering Guitar1969 question in the forums - I must have missed this lesson but this is exactly something I am looking for to add to my exercise regime. Thanks Muris.
Glad if it helps, you're welcome!
Easily explained difficult thing! Great!
Wow ! This is amazing ! Definitely a must-have for all guitarists ! Awesome, Muris !
Cheers Alex, let me know if I can help tho!
Good lesson, but I have to criticize you a little. In stead of 4th triplets you're actually playing 4ths in 3/4 time. Same for 8th triplets and the 16th triplets.
I would be much more rewarding (and difficult ^^,) if they actually where triplets. Playing 4th triplets in 4/4 is much harder than 4ths in 3/4.
Nope, I think you got it all wrong I'm afraid,
tempo (and time signature as well) stays the same all the time
which means that all durations (including triplets) are correct.
But what I DID is that I adapted drum groove a little
for each timing so that beginners could play it eventually.
Pattern over 4th triplets does sounds like 3/4 indeed
but you need to look at the whole picture,
those are perfect 4th triplets compared with tempo and original 4/4 time signature.
Yes, I agree. The time is correct, there is the same amount of milliseconds between each note. However I find it harder to play to a backing track going strictly in 4/4 and having to think 4th triplets. Forcing your head to think, not just listen to the drums in the background.
But still, this is hard. Struggling a little with this myself. Another thing that is hard is going back and forth between 16th and 16th triplets.
Of course it's A LOT harder to play those triplets
over straight 4/4 drum groove
but I needed to adapt it for some less experienced players as well.
Yeah, I thought so.
Maybe its an idea for your next timing exercise video.
A bit more advanced lesson than this one might be cool, why not.
Oooh might I request how to play quintuples (correct? 5) and septtuples (again, correct? 7)?
Quintuplets and Septuplets are hard to count just like that,
what people often do is that they use word (or sentence)
made of 5 or 7 "pronouncing parts".
Per example wikipedia, when you beak it parts
you get: wi, ki, pe, di, a.
Now say that word broken in parts over one beat
and you'll get exact picture of quintuplet.
For septuplet it's easier to find short sentence made of 7 parts
instead of looking for word made of 7 parts.
An example, I will take it to the bus.
That's 7 short words that cannot be broken in parts
so we have 7 parts sentence as well.
Say that sentence over one beat and there you have it, septuplet.
