Dotted notes.

If we put a dot after a note, it means that the note is lengthened by half of itself.
So if we want to play a dotted quarter note, that is like the length of three eighth notes and the note that follows it could be an eighth note. Like this:

   Click the play arrow twice.

if we want to play a dotted half note, that is like the length of three quarter notes and the note that follows it could be an quarter note. Like this:


   Click the play arrow twice.
