Please could someone clarify what the highlighted note combination means? The source is the song "Paint it Black" sheet music for guitar and piano.
The 3. verse contains two syllable below the 2nd. quarter (Maybe) and the 2. verse two syllable below the 4th. quarter (people)
so if you play or sing the tune of the 3. verse you have to play or sing 2 eight notes, and dito in the 2. verse.
