– Hey, this is Geoffrey Keezer for Two Minute Jazz. I’m gonna talk to you about alternating between triplets and sixteenth notes. Now this is something you can do in your solos to really give some rhythmic spice, so you’re not just playing eighth notes all the time. An easy way to practice, you know, get a little metronome like this, start slow, you can just do scales.

Right? Or you can do any combination of that.

But the main thing is just lock it in with that metronome, so when you’re playing with a real drummer, you’re locked in with the drummer’s groove. You know, and then you can speed it up. Always start slow, and then go faster.

So in the context of jazz.
