I'm inclined to agree - TS< can you..elaborate..on your question?

It doesn't really make a lot of sense as it stands.

No. If you can't do something then slow down and concentrate more until you can. If you can't do it slowly then there's something wrong with your technique.

I suspect he's trying to play triplets and having trouble with accenting the first note of each triplet because it falls on alternating strokes.

TS: It's okay to play the notes as six note groupings if that's the sound you're going for but you shouldn't be doing it because of difficulties accenting triplets. Slow down and work on getting the accent in there, that's the only way to do it.
Speed is a by-product of shut the fuck up.

You can do that but you should be able to accent every third note aswell, if you're unable to accent any note on command, that's a technical limitation that may detract from the music in the future. Sometimes in playing, the music calls for the first note of each beat to be accented for a specific effect, whether it's to outline a chord or be a melody, if you're unable to do it as the music dictates, it's going to subtract from the overall sound because of a technical limitation.

Your limit should be your imagination, not your technique.

If I am reading this correctly, maybe this is the answer:

Hold the root note, the note you want to accentuate, just a millisecond longer then the others.

You shouldn't have to hold a note longer to accent it, you can but there are other ways to accent and constantly holding the first note of each triplet's going to send you way out of time very quickly.

Yeah, I agree, I'm'a grasping at straws on a vague question here.

Here's another blind guess: Start your triplet with an upstroke, then down, and go down to the next note down picking it.

Then go back up. Always start your triplet with upstroke when descending and downstroke while ascending.


It's like plotting a course in space with a compass... this question.
