A scale or series of notes played to the count of 123-123-123-123-123-123-123-123-123-123-123-123........................

Yeah, think of it like this:

A quarter note gets 1 beat.
An eighth note gets 2 notes per beat.
Well, a triplet is a series of 3 notes, and all three comprise one beat.

A scale or series played 123 and so on is called 3rds. A triplet is 3 notes squished into a beat. Whether it be an eigth note, 16th note quater, whole etc. Where you can usually only fit 2 notes, now you can fit three a triplet is what that is. Search triplet on youtube youll probably get someone clapping them

"3rds" refer notes played a third apart or "3rds" as in a degree in a scale.

I don't know if that's what you were trying to say or not, but I wanted to clear that up.

Rock on!

Yeah that works with sequencing but a triplet refers to the notes played in one beat. A triplet can be one note played 3 times every beat.


Beat 1---2---3---4---
notes 123 123 123 123

Jazz triplets play the 1&3 with the 2 being silent or a rest but it is still part of the count to keep up with the triplet feel.

Playing the 1&3 continuously would really be more of a shuffle feel I think.

The entire video is good but jump to 2:50 to hear the explanation of jazz triplets.

I guess I am going more off of my drum roots here. Your standard swing usually has a "1-2-a-3-4-a" type of pattern, which omits more than just the second note of the triplet. If you use a "1-a-2-a-3-a-4-a" type of pattern, it's more of a shuffle type of feel. Still jazz, but very different sound imo.

That's what i love about music. You can alter the slightest beat and create a sub-genre.
