The number of packages of three eighth notes determine the bar: 6:8 for two groups of three eighth, 9:8 for three groups of three eighth notes, 12:8 for four groups of three eighth notes etc…
When the bar is binary, but the eighth notes are systematically played in a way to attack the first note and the third, of a triplet of eighth notes, we indicate a “triplet feel”.
Eighth notes are written like if they were binaries and regulars, but they interpret themselves like the eighth notes 1 and 3 from a ternary measurement.
Must not be confused the 3:4, which is a binary bar, in which each time is carved in eighths notes, with a ternary bar, in which each pulsation will be cut in 3 equals eighth notes.
In a binary bar, the triplets are permitting to pass from a ternary interpretation of the pulsation, like the duolets indications, which are permitting in a ternary bar to switch on a binary interpretation of the pulsation.
How to easily write a drum pattern in Guitar Pro ?
