i got this tab for a song. one part theres eighth notes with a 3 underneath so theres six eighth notes in that measure. what exactly does that mean. does the eighth notes still get the same timing as regular eighth notes? sorry its probally obvious. im that stupid lol
They are triplets, so you plays the 3 8ths in the space of 2.

You can count it out as 1 a la, 2 a la and so on...
