Gallops are series of 3 of the same note in a row, named as such because they sound like a horse gallop. A gallop consists of two 16th notes followed by an 8th note.

A typical example of a gallop sequence might look something like this:

One method of hitting gallops is to downstrum each note. Downstrumming usually occurs in Song_GH3_Barracuda Barracuda's main riff.

Alt-strumming (DUD, UDU, DUD)
Another common way to hit it is to alt-strum; strumming down-up-down, up-down-up, down-up-down etc. This is often used for faster gallops such as Song_GH3_RainingBlood Raining Blood (Hard Rain) but is hard to get enough control to avoid strumming in breaks for some people. The huge time window of Game_GuitarHeroIIILegendsOfRock Guitar Hero 3 can sometimes register the next note instead of overstrumming in fast sequences if you accidently strum in between the gallops.

Alt-strumming (DUD, DUD, DUD)
This method is similar to the previous method. The only thing that separates them is that with this method you are strumming down-up-down, down-up-down, down-up-down etc.
