it seems when i try to learn a song, the song is like in 3 notes. I mean their are straight 4 notes but most go 3 notes and a chord and then 3 notes. why is it that? easier?
LOL

The song only uses three notes and a chord? Maybe you just listen to lazy musicians?

Edit: I'm not trying to diss your favorite musicians or anything, it's that your description isn't very easy to understand.

not sure i understand wat u mean but if u mean they play a chord then play 3 notes then...alot of rock songs r in 4/4 and 1 chord + 3 notes = 4....assuming all of them r played as quater-notes...but i never noticed that if thats wat u mean

nope. i usually get 3 3 2 3 3 2 3 3 2 3 3 2. never 3 1 3 1. that's wierd unless the time signatures are not 4/4. or 2 2 2 2. get that a lot too.

well lets just use notes, you learn a song. I'm learning Blood red skies by Judas Priest. the notes for the high E are 20-19-17 in 3's and then 19-17-15. I noticed this with a lot of bands. They seem to use three fingers and the notes end being in 3's but really fast so it seems like its together.

Triplets you mean. a 4/4 signature would go like this.
ex:
E- 19P-17P-15
B- ---------------17

It's all about positioning and moving your hand.

It's easier to play the first three notes, then move your hand and play the next three notes.

If you played them as 3 groups of 2 notes, then you would have to change position 3 times. If you played the first 4 notes in one position, you would have to stretch your hand in an awkward way.

Playing three notes, and then moving your hand to play another three notes just makes it simpler and it fells more even if you know what I mean.
