This one seems hard to do practice exercises for since the concept is so simple, so let's just do some discussion questions.

1) What are some songs you like that use triplets? Try to find a few that use them as brief incursions and a few that are in triple meter the whole time. Are there any artists or styles you find these in more frequently? How are they used in the music you enjoy?

2) How do triplets make you feel? Again, think about both the incursion-style triplets and the full triple meter versions. Do they feel different to you? How would you describe that difference?

3) What about shuffle and swing? Have you encountered those terms before? Do those terms seem synonymous to you? Do they carry any different connotations? What would make you more likely to describe a piece as "shuffle" instead of "swing" or vice versa?

And that's it! post your answers below or on the video, and we'll see you next time!
