My favorite map for excessive triplet reading practice!
Has every tripletpattern except for dkd (almost no kdk too) and plenty of those right after each other in snailspeed which makes it relatively easy to get used to.
Playing this + the Abekobe version (maybe you could link the map converter by qoot for practice purposes too?) gives a really good grasp at reading triple patterns and is still not very fast when played with DT.

Doing even one of the advanced levels using alternation can be so hard and frustrating. Any tips?
Don't give up.
Exactly!

Wow, I'm glad I found this. It's awesome to have these foundations and to build on them~

That's a great tutorial for a Taiko beginner like myself. I'll definitely be using that.

...
On a side note, how the hell am I supposed to combine both of my hands while playing? I'm getting better accuracy on Cory in The House (The only song I'm able to play, lmao) using just one of my hands (if you know what I mean), but when I try both: it turns into a disaster.

Some general advice for everyone starting off:

It happens. If you really want to strengthen your other hand, try playing completely with your other hand; it'll take a while to get used to or even play anything and your accuracy will drop, but don't be afraid of retrying. When you're more comfortable and can control your other hand properly, try playing with both hands.

What I suspect is the real problem in your case and a major obstacle in everyone's Taiko career, however, is getting used to patterns and playing with both hands.
If it's patterns you're having problems with (e.g. triplets) then it's a good thing to consider what hand you'll be using if you alternate. For instance, for ddk, you'll hit d with your right hand, then d with your left, then k with your right (vice versa if you start with your left hand). Practice. Repeat until you're comfortable with playing the pattern. Play it faster. Play it until it's second nature. This is how you can acquire a pattern so that when you recognise one, you can play it easily.

I myself use one hand a lot and use the other only for streams when it's necessary... (very frowned upon play-style involving extensive single-tapping at 200+ BPM)
That being said it's still important to get used to playing with both hands because while you might be able to sustain with one hand into muzukashiis, Taiko is simply not playable at 'pro' level with only one hand.

Good luck with Taiko! :D

this seems like the holy grail for Taiko beginner 8-)

I second tkdLolly's previous post.

On another note, maybe I overtook it with Vajra. It was planed to add more maps to get to such level, but I never came to it. Haha
Should probably really add more easier maps which are also ranked to give beginners even more examples.

This is a great guide. Occasionally I tried to play Taiko but didn't understand several things like the big don etc.
Now I can play properly and instantly have nice songs at my level because of the beginners pack, thank you.

puush links are dead for Extreme training and Extra training. Anyone able to re-host?

Weird, these push links were never removed. I've just re-uploaded them. Thank you for noting it!



New maps should be uploaded some time too. Hm.

Advanced training link is dead.

Edit: I mean, this one http://puu.sh/649ck

Wait, so is it better to map one side to dons and the other to kats (ddkk), or should I just stick with kddk?

Edit: Also, I'm having a lot of trouble with dddkkkdddkkk. My hands keep doing dddkkddkkdd instead...

Would be great if you could fix this! I can't find them anywhere else.
