Lesson Five - Understanding Rhythm

Please read through this lesson.  This lesson is more about music than it is about the guitar.  This lesson could be a chapter in any music book for any instrument.  Here are the main things I would like for you to get out of this Lesson:


  • Be able to identify in music a whole note, half note, quarter note, and eighth note (and the corresponding rests).
  • Know what the top and bottom number of a time signature stand for.
  • Know the value of a whole note, half note, quarter note, and eighth note in 4/4 time and 3/4 time.
  • Try the rhythm exercises given at the end of the Lesson using the chord of your choice.
