Time Signatures A time signature is how the beats play in rhythm. You’ll find ‘em at the start of the staff right after the clef symbol The main ones you’ll use are 4/4 (standard/common) and ¾ (waltz) until you grasp a greater understanding of the rhythms. Stick with 4/4 until you find the need to expand the complexity of your rhythm. The top number is how many beats there are in a measure. The bottom is which note is considered a beat. Ex: 4=quarter note, 2=half, 8=eighth etc.
