Okay, so you have this tab:


         3
     /-------\   
     Q   Q.  E       
G|---0---2---4---||

Legend:
Q=quarter note
Q.=dotted quarter note
E=eighth note 



I am focussing on the rhythm of the example. You have three notes, and they are tripleted, but they are different lengths, how long is each note counted for? Also, what happens if you have 2 quarter notes surrounding a rest worth a quarter note, how long is each sounding note?

I ask this because its in my Grade 2 theory () and I am so confused.

With the rest there, it will be a pause the same length as the first note, and then the note after the rest it will be another note of the same length.

That's a goofy rhythm. I'd think of it like this: The first note is 2 tied 8th note triplets, the second note is three tied 8th note triplets, and the last note is an 8th note triplet.

^Ok, that kind of clears it up. This sort of stuff shouldnt be in until about grade 5 or 6.
