In attempt to improve my crappy sense of rhythm, I've been reviewing how to count beats. However, I've been having some trouble, since rhythm divisions don't seem to translate "mathematically" into words.
Take the bar below for example. What is the proper way to count this?
When I try, I get
1 & 2 3 4
4 at the end instead of
& seems misleading, since the last note isn't a full beat. Am I counting this incorrectly? I assume I'm just missing something...
