3 E’s with 8th Notes
A quarter note can be divided into two 8th notes. We count 8ths 1 & 2 & etc. 8th notes are twice as fast as quarters.
Play this 3 E’s with 8th notes while counting aloud, then play it again, counting subvocally. Plan ahead. Be exact. The challenge is switching back and forth between 8ths and quarters.
Make sure that you can recognize three different E’s; low, middle, and high. See the note-head locations in your mind. Low E is -4 space, Middle E is Line 1 [the bottom line of the staff], and High E is Space 4 [the top space] = Space, Line, Space.
