I count them one a tri pl et ta two a tri pl et ta
either that or ask the octa-mom.
btw it's sextuplets. It's when tuplets get together and multiply.
1 an uh just flows better for me. The only time I would count sextuplets is when I'm learning a new, difficult passage. Most of it I just sight read.The reason I don't like saying triplet out loud is because it's a choppy word and my playing reflects that. When I count my way, I play smoother.
Especially when I'm playing a shuffle, counting let-1, let-2...sounds so lame. I can't groove saying it. Uh-1, Uh-2, Uh-3 flows much nicer.
