Just a few bars, from Gil
Were you reading music or playing it from memory?
How many eighth notes are in the first full measure?
The next full measure broken down like this: 2 eighth notes, 3 quarter notes and 1 half note.
All right, that’s what I thought it probably was.
eight eighth | eight eighth eight eighth eight eighth eight half
That’s twelve notes up to and including the half note.
But the music is written (I’m imagining it based on the lyrics)
Well the we-ather out-side is fright-ning
A total of nine notes.
The difference is that you split the quarters up into two each. Giving an additional three notes.
Yeah, I guess it was from hearing another recording.
