Counting Method 2.
This counting method is
based on the rule of music that what ever is
one beat will be joined with a beam e.g. when
four sixteenths are beside each other their
tails will be joined by a double beam or an
eighth and two sixteenths will be beamed.
Again it doesn’t matter if the stems go up or
down, they will still have the same value. So it
is helpful to learn the different combinations
of sixteenth and eighth notes you can have for
one beat. Then when playing look at the entire
beat instead of all the individual notes. Just
count 1 2 3 4 but play the different
combinations that fall inside each count.
