Basic music counting:
One of the most obvious questions is how musicians know when to music play. They
learn to count the beats.
First let us present you with this. 1 whole note = 2 half notes = 4 quarter notes
= 8 eighth notes = 16 sixteenth notes.
Lets start with this example.
First off, looking at the time signature you know that there are 4 quarter notes
In the first measure the whole note gets all the beats (1, 2, 3 and 4) because 1
whole note = 4 quarter notes, and there are a total of 4 quarter notes per measure.
In the second example, each half note gets 2 beats because 2 quarter notes = 1 half
In the third example, each quarter note gets its own beat because there are 4 quarter notes per measure (time sig).
Let's intermingle the 2 quarter notes and a half note.
Lets add in the eighth notes.
Each eight note is 1/2 of a quarter note, therefore it takes 2 eighth notes to equal 1 quarter note.
Think of it like this: the 1 and the "and" are both half of one quarter note and together they form 1 quarter note and from the time sig we know there are 4 quarters per measure.
This may seem a little confusing now, but all of the sudden it will click. You will hit yourself in the head and wonder how you never understood it.
