I have a short, totally non-musical, exercise with a tricky rhythm at the last couple of bars and I cannot see if I am right or wrong. I would really appreciate if someone could help me with that.

Many thanks

PS. I can usually figure it out. The bars I have problem with are 7 and 8.

PS2. I could not embed the image so I just added links. I also added a mp3 file, so that everyone could listen to me.



This is the piece:

If you're not on, you're pretty damn close, I count it 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & with rest on the 2 and coming in 1st 8th note on the 2& holding through 3& then 4- 4& for the last quarter note. Counting it out loud your tempo may be speeding up a fraction? that measure? Nerves? Or it may be right on, but you've got the rhythm pretty close.

FYI I don't play piano to that level, but I did 6 years of flute so reading music I'm not too shabby.

Thanks for your comment.I feel from your response that I am not correct rather because of my technical capability of playing it. I have tried this with metronome and I am always slightly off -.- little fast, little slow etc.

I am also not interested in a total perfection of that. I am more interested in how I read rhythm. It is syncopated and this is where it catches me. Cheers!

Count it out, slowly and with the metronome, this way and make sure your counting is absolutely even 1 - and - 2 - and - 3 - and 4 - and ....

I was once part of an orchestra of about 60-ish and the conductor would make us put our instruments down and clap and count out measures in unison then up to tempo. Then instruments back up. There is NO substitution for clapping while counting it out to get a rhythm. (although IMHO, reading the score while clapping and counting to a recording will get it done every time)

The rhythm is basic - crotchet (written as two quavers tied) , quaver, crotchet.

It looks harder as there is a quaver rest.

I would count the quavers , so 1 to 8, and play very slowly

Also all rhythms are doable with slowing down very much and crefuk counting.
