Ex­am­ple2 Com­bin­ing Eighth and 16th notes

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Rockschool -

The first bar is made up en­tirely of 16th notes and rests. Count ‘1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a’ to keep track of the sub­di­vi­sions in each of the 4 main beats per bar. When you see a rest keep count­ing, but stop the string from ring­ing rather than pick­ing. The sec­ond bar in­cor­po­rates eighth notes with 16ths in three dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions. The rhythm is the same as the first bar, but a few notes sus­tain for longer.
