Reverse Triplet With Second Stroke Accents

Accenting the second stroke in a reverse triplet.

In this lesson you will be learning some more Accent placements for the reverse triplet. In all of the exercises presented on this page you will only be accenting on the second stroke of each block of triplet, which will always be with the left hand. This will be tricky as you will be playing a standard stroke immediately after the accent on the same hand. Remember when accenting to make the note with the '>' symbol above it louder than the rest. You can achieve this by lifting your stick slightly higher than normal and pushing down with it a little more.

Various different combinations of accent have been given below and feet have been included with all exercises. If the feet are throwing you off feel free to remove them until you are comfortable with the hand part. Remember to use the reverse triplet sticking throughout.
