You're welcome, I'm working on a Chopin prelude in E minor that has eighth note triplets against regular eighths.

Take your 16ths and subdivide them into triplets and you get this:
NooNooNooNoo  (N means note and o is a beat of time)
Now write the eighth note triplet like this:  NoooNoooNooo

Notice how both beats have been subdivided into 12 equal parts that can be stacked on top of each other.

When you stack them you get this, I spaced the letters to make it easier to read.
 Eighth triplets -   N o o o N o o o N o o o
   Sixteenths -      N o o N o o N o o N o o

Play this very slowly with a different sound in each hand and eventually you will get a feel for it.
It will be difficult at first.
If it does not sound like African music, you aren't playing it right. Wink

Sorry I should have been more specific: eighth note triplets over sixteenths

What kind of triplets? Are you talking about eighth note triplets over 4 sixteenths? In other words, 3 over 4?

Hi
I have an exercise that I need to practise it involves playing a pattern of triplets over 16th notes. I am having a great deal of difficulty with coordination. Does anyone have any tips that might me with this.
