Yes, that would be 104 beats per minute, and generally would be considered Andante, if it's 4/4 or 2/4 time signature.Kirkland Gavin wrote:If you have a quarter note preceded with a number such as 104, is that saying 104 beats a minute? And is it considered Andante which can be either 80 up to 104 bpm.
The pinwheel always indicates that you need to damp the previous note of the same voice line, which was played on an open string, and would otherwise keep on ringing. Sometimes the line is used to clarify which note has to damped when you encounter the pinwheel. Otherwise you need to backtrack to see which note has to be damped. So the location of the pinwheel indicates the when, not which.Kirkland Gavin wrote:Regarding the pinwheel, if you have a whole note with it over it with out a line dose that mean there is no duration or just the 4 beats then mute?
If the pinwheel has a line going to the next note with the pinwheel you would dampen it just as you play the next note?
I think you're referring to this? Question about phrase marksKirkland Gavin wrote:thank you ok I understand the time and BPM thanks, also now the pinwheel makes sense good stuff.
Oh also when a group of note or when 3 or bars has the curved line over th top or tie, running from 1 note to the next. I know that sometimes it mean to let the note ring to the end of the curved line. however in the case of 3 or 4 bars is it saying that the note rings until its damped through the bars in certain spots. haha sorry for asking o many questions. thanks.
