I need to put a rhythm in one of my songs but I can't for the life of me figure out how to put it on music. Here is me tapping the rhythm, if you could please add some notation for this rhythm that would be great (I don't know if there is a better way to add audio snippets in SE so I just uploaded it to Google Drive): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwdYyT-EJPqCaDBPRTgxM0E2U0k/view

Fugu is correct. But - 'give a man a fish...' as the saying goes: by dividing any problematic bar into more, smaller pieces, it's easier to notate it. Here, it's best to split into semiquavers (sixteenths), and count it out slowly. That way, each and every dot will be allocated a number of counts, like the first crotchet(quarter) has 1-2-3-4 on it.
Don't bother counting up to 16, it makes it make more sense to count 1 2 3 4, 2 2 3 4, 3 2 3 4, 4 2 3 4. So using this, you'll be able to try the next by yourself! In 4/4 it's easier to read when each bar can be seen to split clearly into two halves.That's why Fugu has tied the 3rd and 4th notes.
