#beginquote# 3. With rests....if the whole musical accompaniment stops playing at beat 4 of bar 3. And the music is to start up again, either one or multiple instruments, and its a standard 4/4 beat using 4 quarternotes, should the rest last for 4 beats before the music starts up again? For instance, all the instruments stop playing at beat 4 of bar 3, and theres to be a vocal line sung before the next musical bar begins, does the singing have to exist inside a 4 beat and the music has to wait for those 4 beats, or can a lyric be sung across a full bar of silence + another 2 beats, then the music kick in over the next 2 beats before continuing? Rests have the same rhythmic value as notes. Quarter note and quarter rest both get one count. All other rhymic values have the same relationship. Half note/half rest. Whole note/whole rest. Music can be written however you want it to be as long as the basic rules of music are applied. We are talking about traditional music here, not Avant Gard. #endquote#
