Hello ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our video today on triplets. Here I have some very common cliches involving triplets. Today we're going to see what they sound like. We've never talked about notes in groups of threes. So first thing, if you look at this cliche here, or this one, or even these guys, they kind of look like eighth notes, like eighth notes or something like that. But they are not eighth note, they are triplets and the one indication that it's a triplet is we have these little threes here on top.

So, just to recap, each one of these boxes is going to represent a downbeat. So this is one measure in total. So if we took this box here, which would be equivalent to a quarter, we can cut this in half, and we each one of these boxes will be an eight note box, we can cut it into four. And then we've got 16th notes. Some people think that a triplet would be just taking like three of these boxes and then just having a space here, but that would not be a true triplet that would sound something like data read data register still has that 12341234 feel to it, where a triplet a true triplet would be something it would sound like this. So triple 123123, this will be 123123.

And compared to 123123, so a bit different. Also, if we had triplet here, so if we made each one of these boxes, if we divided it into three, three times four, would be 12. But you don't you don't really hear musicians refer to these notes at 12th notes, they would just call them triplet, but they do have 24th notes and 32nd notes, but for some reason, no one really says 12 notes. Let's go ahead and start putting some of these cliches into our triplet boxes here and see what they sound like. Let's see how these cliches will start fitting here. So the first one's easy enough.

So we got the first triplet, the second triplet and the third. And then we just beam them together and then put us a little three there on top. So this would sound like this. So 1234 Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata. You hear some people when they're studying triplets, you can actually say triple it, triple net, triple it, triple it, triple net. So if I were to put this Four times or maybe I'll put a I'll put a rest here, just a quarter rest with another triplet here just to break it up for you.

Okay, so we would have 1234 data, this data off, we would say triple it. So three, four, triple it, triple it, rest, triple it. Yeah, let's try and mix instead of arrest. Let's put some eighth notes to eighth notes there. Okay, so here we would have the way we would have triple net triple net, triple it triple net We would mix these two, we're kind of adding some some strange rhythms together, which I like. So triple net, triple it, triple it, triple it.

So three, four, that data. Hmm. Okay, let's look at some of these other cliches using triplets. Okay. All right. All right, so we've got this guy here.

Let's go ahead and do our triplet box, just to show you. So first triplet box, second and third triplet box. So here we've got a rest. So the first triplets actually gonna receive a rest. Then we've got two triplets here, the second one and the third one. We've been these together, which actually looks like eight notes, but Not because we're indicating with our three here.

So if this would be, triple it triple it, this would be rest, rest, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. Sounded like a wall. So don't don't, don't, don't, don't don't rest, dum dum. Yep. So, let's go ahead and look at the opposite. So we've got two triplets with a triplet rest here.

Being nice together indicates a triplet with our three. So this would be the data so data risk after risk after risk after risk after risk after risk. So risk data Rasta, Rasta, Rasta de de, de de resta ress all this stuff. Gather. So three, four recta rest. So that's actually six, six, like triplets.

So, dump dump, dump, dump, rest 123456. So the last two, the first one and the last one rest. So we've got four triplets here. That's interesting. Let's see. Let's look at this one.

So here we've got two wrists. Here's our triplet box here on the third downbeat. So 123. So we take our triplet rest here, and we've got one triplet in the middle. And we've got a rest here on the third triplet, and we put our three indicating. So this would be like rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest have three full rip stop wrists.

Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump. So maybe this one was this one. So 123 rest, rest, rest all of it, three, four, red bump, bump, bump, bump, red dress, bump breast. Hmm. And when you start messing with triplets, I mean that's, that's like the blues, you know you're playing the blues if you're going to play blues, blues music, you're going to be using all these cliches and also obviously tying them together, which we'll do in another lesson. Let's look at this one here.

We've got two reps to triplet rests with a triplet there at the end. This one's pretty cool. It's like blues, reggae or something. So they've got restaurants thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump. So if we mix this one with this one, so restaurant restaurants, right, but let's look at the last ones. All right, we've got our triplet boxes here.

So first triplet second and third. Let's look at this one. This one's not the most common. I think there are easier ways to represent this idea. I mean, if you just put a 16th note, with an eighth note rest, it would almost do the same effect. It's supposed to just be like, right, just a sharp note.

So but it is there. So this would be a note here on the first triplet, and then two triplets. It rests. So thump, thump, thump, thump. Okay, now we are going to be tying some notes together within the cliche, so we can get some cool effects with this. Okay, make our triplet boxes 123.

So we've got three triplets indicate it's a triplet with our three. So it looks just like this one, but we're going to tie these two notes together. So you will get the value of two triplets in one note. So this would be like, bah bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom, Tom. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Boom, like super bluesy there.

Okay, and then we have our next one, which is basically the same thing. So just reversed. Let's give our triplet boxes. So 123 we've got a triplet here, and the second and the third triplet will be tied together. Indicate triplet with the three. tie these two now we've got thumpa thumpa, thumpa, thumpa, thumpa, thumpa 123.

So here we got bum, bum, bum, bum, and we got bum, bum, bum, ba ba. And we've got bum, bum, bum, bum. All together bom, bom, bom, bom. We're just going to do a little math. Up here, I'm going to mix them up and just show you some of the types of rhythms that you can you can create with these 1234 triple it triple it triple it Tata Tata Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata, the, the, the da da, da dah dah, dah dah dah dah dah, dah, dah, dah dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah dah dock, dock, dock, dock, dock. That The the da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, that top.

There's one triplet cliche that seems I forgot to mention, and this is a very important one. This one, if we broke it up into our triplet boxes would look like this. So first triplets second triplet, third triplet. We've got a triplet here. Then we've got a triplet rest and a triplet here. time together and a three to indicate that it's a triplet.

This one would sound like this. So 123 lit up wrist thump, thump, thump, thump, wrist, which kind of sounds like this one. Ba, ba ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, dum, dum ba, dum ba, ba, ba was more of a staccato, more of a sharper sound. I'll mix this one up with a few of the cliches that we talked about, just so that you can hear the difference. Okay, so let's see, we could do, we could have triple the triple Shoot, shoot, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah dah dah, dah dah, dah, dah dah dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah dah, dah dah, dah dah, dah dah, dah, dah, dah. Another one.

Are reggae one. Go? Maybe. Alright, so right here we would have so funded chip, Chip, da da, da, da. So rest, rest, da da, da, da, da da dah, dah, dah, dah dah, dah, dah, dah dah, dah, dah, dah dah, dah, dah, dah dah, dah, dah. All right, please stick around for dictation on triplets.
