Hello, my name is Stu.
I've been practicing for up to two hours a day for a little over six years and I still can't play a complete song.
My wife says it’s because I'm in my seventies. I disagree. I've run into a little question about the way some the notes are written on a lot of the sheet music I have been using.
I have notes that are clearly written as a half note or a quarter note, and a there's a quarter or an eighth rest over or under it. It doesn't make sense to me. How do I play it?
