Hello, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our class. Today we're going to be talking about 16th notes. So we've talked about whole notes. We've talked about half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes. Now we're going to be doing 16th notes. 16th notes are my favorite, because I like playing heavy metal and rockabilly.

And I just like to do that. Well, this is how you do that. So first of all, let's just look at maybe a bar measure and see how we would place this. Alright, so we know if we had a whole note. That would take up the whole thing. So Ah, and for for timing, so we got four, four beats in the measure.

All right, we could cut this in half. We could have our two half notes Okay, we can do our quarter notes. eighth notes, we know we can tie these four eighth notes together. So we can kind of do this. So and then we've got our 16th notes. 16th notes are about as fast as you can go.

We do have 32nd notes and whatever 64th notes, but not the most common thing. This is about like the speed limit of your notation. So, let's cut this up now into our own divided just go ahead and Put for these guys in a quarter note. So here we have one quarter. So here's our downbeat. Down be Lv Lv, be like 123 and four.

So we could fit 16th note in these four quarters. So, go ahead and do this. Okay, here we are 16 16th notes in one bar here. So this will sound something like this, that that, that that if you notice, we've got two lines here indicating the 16th. Alright, so if we would draw a single 16th note, it would look like this. So check this out.

There's your quarter note One of these guys would be eight. Two of these guys will be your 16th. Okay, if we did the rest, here we have an eighth note rest, right? But you're gonna see two of these little folly deals like that. So 16th is always kind of, you always see two, two lines to two things here. And we can connect them together.

We can have two of them and connect them. Use the two instead of like an eighth note, little pair, which just has one. So you notice all of these have to okay So, let's take a look at some of these cliches, all of these cliches here. Each one is going to be a one beat cliche. So each one of these fits into like one beat. Let's have a look at these cliches and start mixing them up.

All right, here we go. Okay, so our first one here would just be like this so 1234 that slow down. So 1234 da, da, da, dah dah dah dah dah dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah dah. You hear some schools and some teachers they they start to use a Taka, taka taka taka taka taka taka taka. This is easier than going Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata right. So Taka, Taka, Taka, Taka, Taka For me that is easier.

But if you want to use some Taka, Taka, Taka that's cool too man. All right, so we've got thoughts Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata Tata. Right. Okay. Let's check this one out. So you see here we've got three 16th notes.

And we've got one of the 16th notes omitted with the rest during this exercise with 16th. I'm always going to stay the rest where there's a rest. Previously, we could just leave it silent. But I think at the beginning, learning how to do these, it's good to almost hear that that rests in your head, so that it's absolutely rhythmically perfect. So this would be like this 1234 Cup, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist, wrist or Data, Data, Data, Data, Data data.

Okay, this is exactly the opposite. So we've just got rest, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. So 1234 Rest Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. So 1234 ricotta ricotta, without crazy. Alright, so here, we'll do one with just the fall. So 1234 data, data, data, data.

Yeah, instead of top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top. This one, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top, top top. Okay, call this guy I call him while bill. I don't know why I think it's a good idea for you to get intimate with your roommate cliches and give them a name. Maybe this could be frank are something to you? I don't know.

All right. So while bill for me, hey, so 1234 Doc, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest, rest stop. So without saying the rest. On 234 da da da da da, da da, da da, da da. Awesome. Okay, got this guy here.

This would be like, da da da da da. Da da da, da da. So if you kept repeating this rhythmic cliche, it almost sounds like there's like some kind of like little like, like one of these risks, da da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da. So you're gonna feel like this, this sequence of three, if you repeated this one, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba. All right, this one is kind of related to this one. We just take these doing switcher.

So this would sound like this, which is still going to give you that that. That three sequence the top, right, there's three in a row. So got 1234, rest, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. Okay, here we have a 16th to 16th notes paired up with an eighth note, right, so that will complete one beat. Quick looks like a quarter. So we've got that da, da da, ta ta, ta ta, ta ta, ta ta, ta ta, ta ta.

Here we are the same thing just swapped around. So two, three, a four star da da, da da, da da. So 1234 Tata Tata, Tata, tata 234, red Tata, Tata, Tata Tata data data data 1234 Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata, Tata Tata. Here we have an interesting thing here we've got an eighth note because we can see here you have like just one line, but then we've had got it attached to two 16th notes. So, I mean if we if we wrote it in a different way, we could have like, an eighth note like this with two 16th notes And mathematically rhythmically, that is correct. But this is the most common way of writing this idea.

So like, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da da. So let's do this is the metronome for Tata Tata Tata. Same thing here to just switch. So 1234 data. Okay, this guy right here is very interesting. I think.

I'm kind of a nerd, whatever. All right, so we've got a 16th note, but notice how the the second line here is not attached to this note. And same thing here, it's not attached. So another way to write this would be 16th note with an eighth note in the middle, that's another 16th note. Kind of looks a little confusing. So this is the most common way to write this cliche.

Alright, so here we go. 1234 go slower. 1234 dah, dah dah dah dah dah dah dah fast 1234 All right, let's uh let's start mixing these guys up and making some very complex for them.
