Can you help me check these two bars? Did I finish the bars correctly? Or I should not have these dotted eighth- note? Can you help me check these two bars? Did I finish the bars correctly? Or I should not have these dotted eighth- note?

    Your rests are fine, but your written notes are a bit uncomfortable to read. It would be easier to read if you put quaver, quaver tied to a semiquaver for the first example, and then dotted quaver, semiquaver tied to a semiquaver for the second example. – Jomiddnz Mar 26 at 1:40

  • Is this for a rhythm quiz? Tying to only the first sixteenth of beat one seems kind of odd. – Michael Curtis Mar 26 at 15:22
  • Nope. I've just learnt music theory. These rhythm were created randomly and I ask whether it's proper or not. – Bảo Trần Mar 27 at 1:13

The first answer is on the money (BTW quaver = 8th note, semiquaver = 16th note). His or her advice is based on sight readers wanting to clearly see the beginning of every beat (in this case beat 2 of each bar) when 16th notes are involved. You can also substitute a single dotted 8th rest for the 16th and 8th note rests if you like.
