Before starting I want to dedicate this series of blogs to all those who want to venture in the world of Music in a more technical way.
Most of us who play ukulele do it empirically, this means that we taught ourselves, with tutorials, advice, chord books, etc. But when we want to read a score or play the notes They ask us in the ukulele we don't know what to play. Here we will try to show the world of the musical theory needed to play and even share in the same language as another musician who has been in a music academy.
We will start with the rhythmic figures. Surely you have seen these figures somewhere and they are related to music.
These are called rhythmic figures and serve to express the duration of a note. How long is each note? Here we have a table with the duration of each rhythmic figure.
If we realize we can consider the round as the largest figure with a duration of four times (or pulses), the figure that follows is white and lasts half, this is two times or pulses. Then the black follows that is divided in half for a while and so on with the eighth note, sixteenth note and semi-fuzzy, its duration decreases half the time than the previous one.
Just as there is a figure that represents how long a sound lasts, there is also a figure that will indicate the portion of a silence. (That's right, music is not playing all the time, there has to be a time to relax). These silences are still divided in half, (Four pulses, two pulses, one pulse, 1/2 puslo, etc).
Understanding the staff is as simple as this.
In this sample staff we can see that our compass formula brand 4 / 4 (Four quarters). This means that in each measure exactly four notes worth one time will fit. We will count from one to four consecutively and at a constant speed.
We will practice rhythm as follows. We are going to count 1 aloud to four constantly. (1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 ... etc) and we will slap where the note indicates. We start ...
[1, 2, 3, 4,] <<< This is an initial count that will give us the constant rhythm
[P, P, P, P, 1, 2, 3, 4, P, P, 3, 4, P, P, 3, 4] <<< (P) represents the clap and the numbers our count aloud
[1, P, P, P, P, P, 3, 4, P, P, P, 4, P, P, 3, 4] <<<< The second line of our rhythmic reading system.
