Hi,could someone please explain to me how to count the following triplet: time signature is 4/4 and in this bar is a crotchet, a rest and then 3 crotchets grouped in a triplet. How do I count the 3rd and 4th beats?

Assuming that the rest is also a crotchet, beats 1 and 2 are the first crotchet and the rest. The crotchet triplet is spread across beats 3 and 4. Imagine for a moment that beats 3 and 4 are two groups of quaver triplets. We could then count the beats "3-and-a 4-and-a." Given your example of a crotchet triplet and applying the counting noted above, the first crotchet would have the duration for "3-and," the second crotchet the duration for "a 4," and the third crotchet "and-a." Good luck. www.ipracticemore.com
