*NOTE* We'll be learning about tied and dotted notes later on the course. Ignore what was said in the intro.
16th beats open up a world of rhythm opportunities. Up to now each bar of music (playing with 8th beats) only had a choice of 8 places to strum. We now have double that number.
When you play in 16th beats for each hit of the metronome (quarter beat) you're playing 4 hits.
If it's comfortable, play a louder hits on the numbers. For example 1 e + a 2 e + a etc
Read the rhythms as blocks of beats. This is explained at the end of the video.
