I'm trying the Guitar Pro 6 trial version. Is it possible to notate a triplet within a triplet? Let's say I have a triplet in 4/4 time (quarter-note triplet). Can I make one of those quarter-notes into a 3 eighth-note triplet?
What exactly do you want to do? Is it easier to do a 9-tuplet?
Like Neo said, what you're describing is not really a genuine nested tuplet. There's not really a point in doing so.
I'm sorry, my theory knowledge ends with triplets. What is a 9-tuplet? I'm tabbing out a song which is in 4/4 time. The guitarist plays one measure with 6 notes - so 2 quarter note triplets, correct? But one of those notes he does a hammer-on/pull-off which itself is a triplet. The only way I know how to notate this is making one of those quarter notes triplet an eighth-note triplet.
The song is Death's Lack of Comprehension. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IT690X_AUG4 The riff in question is 0:14-0:19. I figured it out though if I rewrite the measures in question in 6/8 time and speed up the tempo.
Glad you figured it out, there's also 12/8 in there
