Revision Stage 2

   Click the play arrow twice.
G quarter note, F sharp eighth note, E eighth note, D eighth note, eighth note rest, quarter note rest.
F sharp, G, A, B sixteenth notes, C sharp dotted eighth note, D sixteenth note,
A quarter note, A quarter note.
D whole note.

   Click the play arrow twice.
F dotted quarter note, B flat eighth note, A quarter note, dotted eighth note rest, E sixteenth note.
F dotted quarter note, B flat eighth note, C quarter note, B natural quarter note, C whole note.
N.B. The dotted eighth note rest is equivalent to one and a half eighth notes, or 3 sixteenth notes, so we need another sixteenth note to make it up to one quarter note value.

N.B. If there is a sharp or flat before the note, then that note is the same (sharpened or flattened) throughout that measure. (Unless a natural has been put in later in the measure.) At the next measure, we start again, and the note is normal. You have to remember that the notes have sharps (or flats) through the measure.
