How to combine 16th bass drum notes amongst 8th hi hat and snare notes?
I am a complete beginner to playing a musical instrument so my apologies in advance! I am trying to work out a song I like by listening to it slowed down in Audacity and then writing it out in Musescore. I got stumped in the first measure when I try to add 16th note bass drum notes amongst the 8th note hi hat and snare notes.
I started by adding 8 hi hat 8th notes, and then a snare quater note on counts 2 and 4.
I then had trouble working out how to add 16th bass drum notes 'inbetween' the hi hat 8th notes. I worked around this by starting at the first note of the measure and adding a full bar of 16 16th bass drum notes and then deleting all of them except for the two that I needed on the 'a' of 2 and again on '+' of 3.
However now it appears I have done something wrong as I appear to have 'lost' one of my hi hat counts for the measure. Once again so sorry for my terrible explanation.. I think my bass drum in being played on the 3rd beat as opposed to the 'a' of the 2nd beat before it but I can't work out how to shift the bass drum back one 16th count.
I have uploaded a screen shot of how the measure looks and if anyone could let me know what I have done wrong and or an explanation as to how I should be adding in 16th notes with the other 8th notes I would be forever in your debt!!
Thank you in advance
