Watch the Eighth Note online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Shuffle Secrets

In this lesson we will study the eighth note triplet. Eighth note triplets are simply a subdivision of each beat into three equal parts. Therefore each eighth note and eighth note triplet receives one third of a beat. They are counted: 1 trip let 2 trip let 3 trip let 4 trip let.

You will receive a drum groove track which will establish this rhythmic concept. Spend time counting and playing along with the track so you are rock solid in your understanding of this rhythm.
