Example4 8th note triplets
EThese 8th-note triplets require three 8th notes to be played in one beat, not two, so practice slowly at first. Note how the pick plays a downstroke on each new string, but alternates on the straight scalic descent. Try reversing
- this exercise with the repeated triplets at the top of the scale, descending. Or start with an upstroke instead of a downstroke, thereby giving you an ‘inside’ picking approach to each new string.
