Why do you say it’s not actually a triplet? I’m sort of confused now – sometimes I hear it and think it is a triplet and sometimes not. Haha! In the video that you’re playing the Old Red Lion you use a lot of triple tonguing, right? And about circular breathing, does it take long to master? I’m still having a hard time imagining when will I be able to do all the gymnastics involved in the process and still be able to play music on top of all that.
