I am having difficulty notating a triplet in one of my songs. I was hoping someone could give me a little help. The measure has a pickup triplet of 3 sixteenth notes. I thought it should also have a half-note rest, a quarter-note rest, and a sixteenth-note rest to complete the measure but it still doesn't resolve. Can anyone guide me in this?

I think the 16th note triplet = 1/8 note...so you need a 1/2, 1/4 and a 1/8th rest.

Shortly after asking for help, my software program fixed my problem for me. The answer was that I didn't need any rests. It was the first measure of the song and was a kickoff note. Thanks for the reply, though.
