HUT 2 3 4…HUT 2 3 4!

Mr. G: Still not clear on what the bottom number means in 4/4 or other designations. Got the top number, but the bottom number has me confused.

bottom number tells you what note equals one beat

a 4 designates a quarter note ( 1/4 )
8 would be an Eighth note ( 1/8 ) and so on

hope this helps

Dave

I like this method of learning and I think it will help me a lot moving forward.
Looks like I’ll be putting my printer to good use finally!
