HiHat plays all quarter notes. Bar 2 – Left hand plays all quarter notes on cymbal (Cym). Right hand plays second, first and third quarter notes of the triplet in the bar on snare (SN). Bass drum plays first, third and second quarter notes of the triplet in the bar. HiHat plays all quarter notes.

 

Commentary:

It is somewhat difficult to master the figure of quarter note triplets, because you are placing six quarter notes in a bar of 4-4. Here you have to make the effort to recite the notes so that you can place your strokes in the bar. Some students think that this kind of figure is not used, but nothing could be further from the truth. As you gain experience playing various styles of music with different groups you will find that it is used and that it often causes problems because musicians are not familiar with it
