andrew, when you are explaining accidentals you do it first in the scale of E.
how is it scale of E when you said taht to define what scale it is we should look at the stave line that the last sharp symbol is placed on, and go up 1 degree of the scale? tha last note is C# and on degree up gives me D#? what did i miss`?

thanks for a really great and inspiring lesson wink.gif

Awesome lesson andrew, But i have a question (as usual sad.gif tongue.gif), its about the rests:



specially the whole rest and the half rest.

You can see that they are located where C is. My question is, do these rests always need to be there? is it correct to put it in another space, say B?

Thanks.

Hi there!

Well a rest has no note so it doesn't matter where on the stave it is - it has no relevance. However, that is the standard way of representing the rests so it would probably be incorrect to move them up or down - I'm not even sure why you would want to do that?

There are a few cases where the rests are moved up and down. Mostly when you're dealing with two different voices in the same staff. Then usually if there's a rest in the lower voice, you'll move the rest down -- both to indicate what voice it belongs to (making the notation more readable) and giving room for any notes in the upper voice. Same thing goes for a rest in the upper voice.

Example from Bach's Goldberg variations:

thanks a lot for all of this Andrew!

I used to be able to read music when i was 8 and playing flute (my parents idea tongue.gif) but when i was 11 I switched to drums and stuck to that ever since, so I forgot which note each line of the stave stands for.

I wanted to start playing guitar for years, but it was just about a couple of months back that I have actually come around to buy one. Now, not even a month from my 30th birthday, I am finally getting back on track with being able to read musical notes again.

And even though I live in Europe I know that song as well biggrin.gif

edit: and it's my first post here in this forum biggrin.gif

I can play it , the mystery tune, but is it possible that I don't know it? It does sound familiar. I'm pretty shure that I played it right ... wait a minute I think I know now what it is. If I play the eight notes section (EF#GE) like this: just two times a fourth note (E E) it sounds like something I know, but wth the eight notes I'm not sure it is the same as you mean. This lesson did clear a few things up for me, thanx

Also your other theory lessons, they rock man!
