So i always found a work around and never actually figured out the right way to do this. I want to do a basic triplet. 3 notes on 1 beat of a 4/4 bar. EVERY place i look has some asshole that says "hit the triplet button idiot". Ok, well, i can click the triplet button, but how do i represent 3 1/16th notes to one beat? It doesn't evenly fit in there. I thought about changing time sig, but I'm not sure how that helps with out also changing the tempo which was always my work around. NO WHERE fucking explains this well. Also, when you explain, I'm not hip to theory, so try to actually explain it instead of giving me some other confusing explanation that I also wouldn't follow.
(i.e. "One eight note triplet is a quarter note in length.
A triplet = 3 notes played the duration of 2 notes of the source length.
An eight note triplet = 2 eight notes = one quarter note."
I under stand what hes saying, but how the fuck do i apply that to guitar pro?)
