#beginquote# 5. How do sustains work in 4/4 beats? If a guitar rhythm's 4th beat is a sustain note, can it only last as long as a quarter-note, or can it sustain for longer? And if it can sustain for longer, does it have to last as long as 4 beats of the next bar before it can resume normal rhythm? Or can it sustain the 4th beat across that beat, then over 2 beats of the next 2 bars and then have to be silent for 2 beats before it can resume normal rhythm? Is this how instruments have to be played in keeping time with a time signature whenever they do things like sustains etc? When you refer to "sustains" you are refering to longer notes like half, whole, or tied notes. Thier rythmic values are constants within the time-frame of the time signature. Longer notes can start or stop wherever you wish them to do so. #endquote#
