This follows the same durations and contour [shape of melodic line] as the EGBDF sequence. We don't need to stare at repeating [same] notes. We read ahead, storing data in our mind cache.
For the 3rd beat in the first 4 measures, create silence for the rest. We can do this by moving a fretted tone to a touch [mute], or stop the tone with our motor hand. Or, both.
Triplets have a rounded, or galloping feel. Instead of two 8th notes per quarter note, there are three. They can be counted 1-trip-let or 1-la-li or 1-2-3.
In 6/8 time, the true beats are on the 1 and the 4. So, there are really two strong beats per measure. The dotted quarter fills a beat. Two dotted quarters fill a measure.
How did you do? If you ever struggle with the notes on the staff, repeat the lines sequence, then the space sequence in this section. Say the note-head location while playing the tone-notes. See it. Know it.
Next, we will put the lines and spaces together.
