#beginquote# Well let's see. Okay, I entered some 32nd notes into a program I have and played it at 60 beats per minute. Well that's not really that bad at all. I would think you could somewhat easily count the notes by following your "inner beat". When playing music, you don't always have to actually count the numbers in your head like "one and two and three y and a four y and a" and so on, for whatever rhythm. I almost never do that, to be honest. I just listen to my inner beat, not actually saying the numbers of the beats in my head. That would be the case for the 32nd notes. I'm actually playing a piece in an orchestra that is mostly 32nd notes, and it's actually around 60 beats per minute. It even has some 64th note runs, which are pretty crazy, but aren't even that hard because of they way they put it, it's hard to explain. Mainly it's just hard counting the rests in the piece, because it's like, an 8th note rest, a 16th rest, a 32nd rest, 16th rest, and just various types of rests all together retardedly, it makes it confusing. Since I've played it so much though, I pretty much have the lengths of the rests memorized, as well as the various difficult rhythms. I guess generally it would depend on the specific piece of music, how you could possiply count and play the 32nd ntoes, but you said you didn't have one in mind. Depending on the rhythms, counting the 32nd notes could be difficult, or fairly easy. I'm not sure if I helped at all, but maybe I may have made something a little more clear. :-/ #endquote#
