Ok. I'm gonna try.

A whole note is played at the speed (duration) dictated by the measure, usually 4/4 time which is 4 beats per measure. So a whole note is the note, 2, 3, 4. A half note is played twice the speed, a quarter note 4 times, and so on. So, if in a measure there are 32 32nd notes, all of those notes would need to played in 4 beats.

I don't think that's a good explanation. What do ya'll think?

in 4/4 time we are playing 4 beats per measure, the quarter note = 1 beat.

in 3/4 time, the quarter note still gets the beat but there are only 3 per bar.

if you are just tapping your foot, each tap of the foot is a beat, and if you play 1 note per foot tap you are playing quarter notes.

if you are playing 2 notes per foot tap (one on the down, one on the up) you are playing eigth notes (1/4 divided by 2 is 1/8).

continuing, if you are playing FOUR notes per foot tap you are playing sixteenth notes, 1/16.

finally, if you are playing EIGHT notes per foot tap, you are playing 32nd notes.

four foot taps per measure, 8x 32nd notes times 4 beats = 32. 32/32 = 1, 1 complete bar.

simplified, if you want to play 32nd notes you would be playing 8 notes per foot tap, or 4 notes on the down, 4 on the up.

good luck.

best way to learn and practice them is to set up a 'nome at like 60 BPM and count 8 notes per beat like gx was sayin'.

OR you could play 16ths at 120 BPM, Quarters at 240 BPM, etc.

Just a way to practice them :P

Thanks nullnaught. I know he asked for an in depth explanation but sometimes in depth is too complicated to understand so I did a laymens explanation.
