Hey just wondering if anyone could offer some tips for picking up this tab?

Specifically this part:

The T notes out of time with the triplet bass really throw me off, not sure how to approach getting my fingers to play them side by side?

p-thumb i-index m-middle a-third

This is how I would approach it. The triplets in the bassline can be tricky when thinking of a good right hand strategy if you've never used your index and thumb to alternate strikes on a single string. These two measures are actually a nice training run for teaching yourself that technique since the fretting isn't complicated.

Go slow.
