Do you count a dotter quarter like: 1 and 2 & ?
I believe its just "1 & 2." The note gets 1 and a half counts, so you wouldnt count the"&" of 2.

Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.

I love you all no matter what.
so once i play the note it will be: 1 and 2 and

so i hit the next note on the second "and"
Even you need help with a certain passage, I, or someone could help you if you posted it.

ok thanks, do you guys know a site where it has everything, little dotted eight / sixteeth notes and stuff and shows you how to count it. I couldnt find a complete site when i googled.
well a dotted quarter note is one and a half beats because the dot adds half of the note on to the end of that note

for example a dotted quarter not is one and a half beats because you take half of one and add it on to the note. A dotted half note is 3 beats because half of two is one and 2+1=3

so you would count a dotted quarter 1 and. where the 1 would be on a down beat and the and would be on the up beat

do you understand?

the way sub_urban was counting it was the way you would count a half note which, of course, is 2 beats.
