In this lesson we look at a triplet. A triplet is when we split a beat up into three equal pieces - remember that an Eighth note is half beat and a Sixteenth note is a quarter of a beat. A triplet lasts for a third of a beat.
Triplets can help give music a laid back a groovy rhythm. This might be why they are used a lot in jazz music.
