      I am struggling with trebles – should a treble be a beat/part of a beat/scrunched in between 2 beats? So… say down (up-down-up) up OR down (up-down-up) down ?? One way seems a ‘double’ the other too short to be a beat?? 🤨

      Triplets are funny things. They are three in the space of 2. So could be 3 eighth notes played in the time usually for 2 eighth notes. Same idea if they were quarter notes or sixteenths.

      As for are they evenly spaced or some notes a tad longer than others, the answer is ‘it depends’. It depends on style or kind of tune. Swinging it? Those are often not even.

      Hope this helps
