Hey Andrew (or anyone else) just wondering if I can get abit of help with something... I wasnt sure where to post this but considering it is to do with timing I thought this might be the right place, if not just delete my post and maybe I will make a thread asking the question. but anyway here goes...

I was looking at this piece of music here earlier:
[attachment=1084:attachment]
and I couldnt really figure out how it was suposed to be played. I have already read your threads on musical notation and timing but I couldnt spot these symbols in any of the threads. Some insight into how I should be looking at this would be greatly apreciated. this bit (and the rest of the song) sounds really awesome and I would just love to be able to crank it.... Just try playing it yourself with some thick heavy distortion smile.gif
edit:
sorry about it poking out the side like that but im pretty sure I did make the image within the size guidelines... maybe I will have to figure out exactly how wide I can make images.


The image size is fine smile.gif

The way to read this is as a sequence of 8th notes and 16th notes.

Looking at the first 3 notes, they are all joined together, but that doesn't make any difference to anything. The first note is an 8th note, the 2nd 2 are 16th notes. Why? Because they have an extra bar (they are sharing it but it applies to both of them).

So we have, 8th-16th-16th

The next 3 notes have the bar between the first 2, so we get:

16th-16th-8th

The next unit of 4 notes has that extra bar for alll of them, so it would be 16th-16th-16th-16th

After that the rythm repeats.

Let me know if this answers the question smile.gif

Awesome thanks Andrew, that deffinitly cleared it up for me. sounds slightly difficult for such a beginner as me but I will deffinitly give it a good shot tomorrow.. but now I am just going to read a theory lesson or two before I go to bed. I think I am really starting to get it now (theory) and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside tongue.gif

The astute among you will have realized that we could get the same effect by tying a quarter "not" to an eighth note like this:


Just a typo, I was reading it and was like, wait this is how not to tie it! lol Its obviously suppose to be "note".

Great lesson
