Re: Rests help! Urgent
If you're counting 16th notes, an 1/8 note rest will equal two of those 1/16th note counts....examples as follows:
1(e)+(a) is 2 1/8th notes played on "1" & "+".
1e+(a) is 3 1/16th notes played on "1e+", followed by a 1/16th note rest. However, you can also say (and therefore write) it as 2 1/16th's and an 1/8th, as the last 1/16th note in the group ("+") can be joined to the 1/16th note rest. So "+" 's note value can be changed to an 1/8th, as mathematically as we all know, 1/16 +1/16 = 1/8.
1e(+a) is 2 1/16th notes played on "1e", followed by an 1/8th note rest....this is because in this example, two 1/16th note rests can be added together. BUT if the very last rest was changed to a 1/6th note, it'd be very different, as you will then have 1e(+)a.
