I'm wondering if there's a tremolo notation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremolo) for a repeated Sixteenth note triplets like this one for example:

Sixteenth note triplets

I've only seen the notation for regular rhythm figures like Sixteenth or eight notes.

This would have been notated differently in the 19th century, but contemporary practice is this:

If it's necessary to make the rhythmic subdivisions clear:

Yes, this is possible. This would then look like this:

But then, this would canonically be read as

so you might want to do

or maybe use sextuplets instead of triplets.

    Those quarter note shouldn't be dotted, and there should be a '6' under them, not '3'.

  • @PiedPiper Note the or maybe use sextuplets instead of triplets at the end. Also the note should be dotted, as else it would correspond to 2/3 of a quarter. See for example here for a real example: s9.imslp.org/files/imglnks/usimg/6/67/…

    That example is notated according to the practice of Schubert's time, although it's clear enough from the context. Modern practice is to write quarter notes (if you have the book: Gould p.220). It's the words "or maybe" that are wrong (the Schubert has a sextuplet example).
