What exactly does C mean when it is used for the type of timing. My friend told me it jsut meant it could be anytiming or sumthing like that. idk i didnt understand him. Also if there is no key sig, and you sharp a note does that mean that you sharp that note for the rest of the song? And if that is true, then if u put it back to nuetral then would it be like that for the rest of the song until another sharp sign is there?

x2. And if there is no time signature, but an enharmonic appears in the music, you only play it that one time, rather than always playing it as that.

is there a slur underneath them? If so, that means they're triplets, which means instead of playing 2 notes in one beat, you'll play 3 notes in one beat. It kind of creates a tempo inbetween an eighth note and a sixteenth note.

when you sharp/flat a note (meaning it's dffered from the key sig), it stays that way for the rest of measure.

If you're going to just pad your post numbers by posting pointless, moronic crap like that, you might as well spell "you're" correctly, idiot.

C=4/4
C with a slash down the middle means 2/4 (correct me if not)

a sharp in the middle of a bar means u play that one shaprened, for the rest of that BAR, it then is got rid of afterwards, no time signature? maybe its in C MAJOR?

y is that hard maybe im missing something
i suck but THATS OK!

ok, the first guy is correct. If a sharp or flat happens outside of the key signature (there is ALWAYS a key signature, if there are no sharps or flats it is in C major or A minor, they are the same thing) then it is only played that one time, not throughout the piece. Now, in your book, are you sure that the C doesn't have a vertical / through it. That would be cut time.

Yes they are.

Then they're triplets, like I said. Instead of playing them 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &, count them tri-puh-let tri-puh-let tri-pu-let tri-puh-let, so you're getting 3 in on every beat instead of 2.

interesting so its just a C (common time) and its in the key of C major (a min) so... umm r there little 3's above the notes that are in 3's?
i suck but THATS OK!

C with a slash is called Cut-Time, or 2/2. Half note gets the beat :P

And if there is an accidental in a measure, it's good for the measure unless it's been naturalized again.

If there is no time signature, well, I don't know.

If there is no key signature, it's in whats called an Un-written key, meaning it's either in C major/A minor, or it's in another key but all of the accidentals are written in because the song modulates a lot and it would be a hassle to keep up with all of the key changes.

no key signature could also indicate the piece is modal or A-tonal

This is right. To make more sense of accidentals for people....

If I have a song in 4/4 in C major (no flats of sharps)...
A measure consisting of 4 quarter notes which are all the note C like
Q Q Q Q
The first Q has a sharp accidental and the fourth one has a natural sign....
The first 3 notes are sharp then the last natural.
