  Metronome fun: triplets

Developing your ability to play in time is essential.

In this lesson you's discover how Rotem uses the metronome in his practice routine.

There is no TAB for this lesson. Instead, focus on understanding Rotem's thinking. Apply the same rhythmic ideas to the arpeggios, scales, and exercises you'll learn throughout this course.

TIP If you don't have a physical metronome download a free app on your iOS or Android device.

Key points to remember

  • Experiment with the metronome when you practice scales, arpeggios or licks
  • Place it on the third triplet (one, two, three)
  • Place it on the second triplet (one, two, three)
  • Hit the metronome right on the click

What's next?

Grab your guitar and take 5 minutes right now. Set your metronome as mentioned above. Play any scale. Get comfortable with how it feels to have the metronome on the second or third triplet.

When you are ready, continue to the next lesson where you will learn about the importance of dynamics.
