Triplets are the most important thing to learn if you want to play some sweet blues.
OK, maybe I’m overstating my case a bit, but trust me these little guys are incredibly useful. I find myself using triplets in nearly every tune I play or lick I write.
So, what are triplets you ask? It would be nice if triplets were some sort of special guitar gadget that made you a blues master shortly after purchasing one…or three. But, no that’s not it. Brace yourself though, because to talk triplets we have to talk theory.
