Now, we're gonna do the jazz
two-beat feel with the triplets faster.
One word of encouragement and
also caution in here.
It's a lot of fun to play these tempos a
little faster, but with the triplets make
sure that the triplets are always
driving towards the down beat.
Sometimes, we can get caught up in the
triplets that we don't reinforce the down
beat, so the groove suffers because we've
created these busier triplet things, but
we don't land on the downbeat strongly.
So, remember,
every triplet that you play is in service
of getting back to the next big beat.
It's actually leading toward
the big beat that follows it.
So, here we go.
Jazz two-beat with triplets, faster.
