Today I’m going to speak with you about whole notes, when they relate to 4/4 time, also called common time. In 4/4 time you’ll find four beats per measure. A whole note, as being the name implies, consumes a whole measure.
To be aware of the proper way to play a complete note, start your metronome. Hit an essential on a click on the metronome and hold it for four clicks. On the fifth click, a brand new measure is starting and you will play the note again. Remember that the click that you simply start on counts together click. So it goes: note click click click, note click click click, note click click click, etc.
Keep playing whole notes, holding them for four clicks and repeating around the fifth click til you have a feel for whole notes.
