Standard Notation Tablature Version

Dotted Half Notes receive 3 beats

Whole Notes receive 4 beats

A dot placed after a note will increase it's value by half the original.

A time signature consists of two numbers placed at the beginning of a piece of music.

The top number tells you how many beats are in each measure.

The bottom number will tell you which rhythm gets one beat. (The 4 stands for the quarter note getting one beat)

In the beginning the only numbers you will see in the top are 3 or 4. In the bottom you will only see a 4 at this point. (more on time signature later)
