The Dot, Part #1

The dot lengthen the note by adding half it value to it. In this lesson we will learn the dotted half note and the dotted half note rest.
As the quater note is the half of the half note, you just have to add the value of a quater note to the value of the half note to get a dotted half note. Thus in a 4/4 bar the dotted half note is the value of a half note plus a quater note, so the dotted half note is 3 beats long.
