Ukulele Secret #4: Expanding Your Triplet

Everybody loves the triplet strum. This secret takes one of the more popular strums and shows you how to add a beat and change the whole feel.

I am skipping a tutorial on the triplet strum itself as there are many already out there. If I get the urge I will find one and include it here. But the basic right hand is index finger down, thumb down, index up. Repeat.

I am playing two of these triplet patterns and then adding a down up with the right hand index finger. So the new pattern count sounds like 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2, repeated. One two three one two three one two one two three on two three one two, etc.

Give it a try.
