Eighth Note Triplet Flam Tap With Swung Eight Feet

Adding feet to the flam tap as triplets.

In this lesson you will be applying a swung eighth note rhythm across the two feet underneath the triplet version of the flam tap. To play a swung eighth rhythm you will place notes on the first and last of a triplet, you can find a lesson on this at the bottom of the page.

In the examples below I have used various versions of the rhythm. If you are unsure of the placements, try to latch the foot on to the appropriate hand. Use the given examples as a starting point to create your own parts.
