Lynne can you possibly write out the count above the notes for me because i don't understand an 1/8 note is 1&2&3&4 also how is the 1/8 note rest 4e please mark the count for me.



I am sorry. but I have no way of writing over your picture.

The QUARTER NOTE gets 4 parts of the beat.
The eighth rest gets TWO parts of the beat. (each "part of the beat is in this case a 16th note)
