2nd Lesson

Hello. Today I`m going to teach a very important thing, counting trioleis.
Triolies are 3 stokes every quarter note.
I`ll explain it with the timeline picture I used last lesson.

Lets say the whole time between first beep and second beep is ... 10 second
The blue dots represend a strike
The first strike is at exactly 0 seconds, it starts the counting
The seond one is at exactly at 5 seconds, while the 3rd beep is at exactly 10 seconds
 The forth strike is already a new quarter, that means you start counting to 10 again from zero.
I hope you got it right, it is pretty hard to explain it through writing, if you have any questions feel free to comment and ask (:

Next lesson I`ll teach you how to read notes, And than we`ll get to some real drumming (:
