Hi Violetweeds!

Glad that you figured it out and my apologies for being so long away from the pages.

We really can't have full MP3s of the songs, especially with the lyrics suung, here on the website because that would be a blatant infringement on copyright. We're working on correcting that, though...

The easiest thing to do is to get a copy of the original recording (people here tell me you can still download these on some sites). If that doesn't work for you, send me a message and I'll try to work something out as soon as I get my recording gear unpacked.


Triplet Timing

I think I've been playing triplets wrong. When I studied the Horse with No Name lesson, I played the solo as three notes then a space, three more notes, etc. Sort of like sixteenth-note, sixteenth-note, eighth-note, ... sixteenth-note, sixteenth-note, eighth-note, etc. After studying the Before You Accuse Me lesson, it seems to me they are instead intended to be played as equally spaced notes, ie, one measure of the HWNN solo would be 12 equally spaced notes. The BYAM rhythm would be the same, but missing the 2nd, 4th, etc. notes.

Is that right?

Yes, they should be equally spaced.

I have my students count One-trip-let-two-trip-let evenly; that helps get the sounds in the right place.
