Triples vs. Triples - Spirit Music Meet-Ups


Note:  Triple-Strokes are an extension of the “compressed/contracted, closed-textured” Double-Strokes R r L l also used for rolls like R r r L l l R, but can also be “expanded/loosened” into more “opened-texture” rudiments like the Triple Diddle R R R L L, which could be found on the “Triplet-Based Diddle Rudiments” on the Diddles Page, but since the Triple-Stroke R r r is more complex, it takes precedence so I will include it here on this page.  However, if the Triple-Stroke exists as grace-note strokes of unspecified Note/Time-value as a Setup to a Principle-Stroke as with the Triple-Stroked 4-stroke Ruff lllR  or  rrrL, these are included on the Drags & Ruffs Page.  The level of complexity and uniqueness of sound has caused others in history to classify them differently, but you really should view them as all related on a spectrum of open-to-closed Texture.


Warning:  Triple-Strokes R r r L l l or “expanded/loosened” for an more “opened-texture” as R R R L L L should NOT be confused with Triplets, which is a general term for an artificially-notated Ternary-group of 3 notes in the place of 2 notes, though Triplets can also refer to any 3 strokes such as Alternating-Singles R L R or L R L found on the Rudiments – Singles page, Front-Side Triplets R R L or L L R and Back-Side Triplets R L L or L R R found on the Rudiments – Diddles page.
