Practice is almost always the primary answer to every question or problem that is asked here. But, here's a bit of info and a few tips:
From our Terms and Definitions page-
Triplet- A triplet is a 3 note rhythmic figure that fits in the space of one foot tap (one beat). Emphasis should be placed on the first note (of the three notes) of every triplet. The triplet is used extensively in blues because triplets work great with shuffled eighth-notes and most of the blues you hear is based on a shuffled eighth-note feel. More on "Shuffled 1/8th Notes"-
*The most important point of triplets is to get a very heavy emphasis on the first note of every triplet. Try to exagerate the first note by playing it 2-3 times louder than the other two notes.
*Sing the triplet first before trying to play it. If you can sing it, you not only have sound of the melody in your head, but also the timing and emphasis on the first note.
*If you are having particular problems with the blow-draw patterned triplets, slow it way down and try to feel/hear the heavy emphasis on the first note. If you can't do it correctly slow, then you won't be able to do it correctly fast.
