Okey, so I know some basic like 1/16 but I recently encountered: 1/8

and I have no idea how many beats per click that is.

I feel so oblivious at some points in the process of learning theory biggrin.gif

This comes from a drummers perspective, who now plays guitar(and poorly at that):

Instead of "1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a" which is the count for 16ths - which equals 4 beats per note, a total of 16 per measure

For 1/8 notes you count "1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &" - 2 beats per note, a total of 8 per measure

The way I think of it is : Imagine your 16 notes that you know as Up and down strokes - Now just do down strokes only - These are 1/8 notes

Does this help?
