I'm trying to play Take me to church by Hozier on a program I made in assembly. It takes into account the pitch and the number of beats involved per note. In the piano music sheet I found for take me to church, on the part where tempo is specified, it says:
"Slowly (quarter note) = 63 (two sixteenth notes with a beam = eighth note sixteenth note with a 3 bracket above)"
How do I interpret this based on the pitch and number of beats involved per note? Thank you.
Also (separate question from before), I'd like to ask how to interpret ties and slurs under the same criteria. Thank you.
