Subject: RE: stumming help please
You could do either as long as someone who is tapping their foot in 4/4 can continue doing that. If you can do the strum as basic 4/4 and sing the triplet you have the best of both worlds. If you try to strum the triplet as you sing it there is a chance that the underlying 4/4 might get lost.

A genuine triplet over two quarter notes does sound kind of 'out of time'. You could try singing three eighth notes and leaving the fourth silent. That will sound more 'in time' and will be easier to do.
