: Tap out a 4/4 beat. (Do it slowly the first time, so you get it right.) Every beat is a quarter note.
: Now, on the first beat of a bar, play the "hoo" note. Make it last a quarter note long (one beat).
: Next, play the first "la" note. Make it about 2/3 as long as the "hoo" note.
: And finally, play the second "la" note. Make it about 1/2 as long as the other, about 1/3 the duration of the "hoo" note.
: So, you have a hoo-la-la that lasts 2 beats or 1/2 a bar. The "hoo" is as long as both "la"s put together, but the "a"s are shuffled, meaning the first one is longer and the second is shorter.
Dude, I totally get it. Thanks a lot for your help. I didn't know what you meant before, but you did a great job explaining it for me. Thanks again.
