Mahalo Guitar Solo Course: Triplet Practice

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Triplets Practice Exercises: Basically, when it comes to practicing triplets, you can use any scale or harmonic pattern you want. In this example, Jen is using the A minor pentatonic scale. Here are two exercises you can do everyday to nail down triplets. Exercise #1 (Counting): Pick a fret on the guitar. Out loud, count "1...2...3...4..." at a comfortable tempo. Pick the note on every quarter note beat for one bar, then on the next bar, play eighth note triplets and count those out loud. So, you should be hearing yourself say this on the first bar, "1...2...3...4..." and this on the second bar, "1...2...3...1...2...3...1...2...3...1...2...3" and continue this back and forth pattern until the rhythm sounds fluid. Exercise #2 (Triplet scales): Play the A minor pentatonic scale (or any preferred scale) up and down the neck in triplet rhythms. Make sure to use a metronome to help you keep time or if you don't have a metronome, count quarter notes out loud and play through the scale. Make sure to add these exercises to your daily practice, and playing triplets will soon feel like second nature. Read more by visiting our page at:
