By "4 bar" you mean 4 measures worth, right? 16 quarter notes ought to do it.

You have the "puls" that goes one, two,three, four, two,two, three, four, three, two, three, four, four, two, three, four…and then you start to play again. You simly count four beats in one bar which you can quit easily figure out if you se 4/4.
It it`s 6/8 you count onetwothree, fourfivesix, twotwothree, fourfivesix and so on.
3/4 is waltz then youcount onetwothree…
Hope that helps.

HOW DO YOU COUNT RESTS? Tsk tsk tsk... You`re worse than the Sad Band people, no offense. Except if after a long rest there are is a quarter/half rest they don`t count it. They have to be taught how to do that, long rest or no long rest. I get so thrown off because of it. I was trying to make them look good, but instead they make me look bad. I could easily convince the crappy trombone player in my class to join and he`d blend in fine, if there were more than 2 trombones. Maybe it wouldn`t make a difference...

Panda, I`m only wondering how some would find it so hard to count a rest that extends over one bar, which the people in the sad bands (which I don`t even know why I`m in them. They`re so terrible that it`s not boastful to say that I`m the best one in there and they make me look really bad) already know how to do. But I suppose the Sad Band people could be worse. The flute players can barely play QUARTER NOTES grouped in 3s and they skip quarter rests and they can never get out of one key signature (Bb major) because they never check what it is. They try to compete with me even and some have themselves CONVINCED that they are better than me just because it took them "only 15 days and 45 tries" to be able to play every song that was given out, which I could sightread and get right on the first try. I should get it scanned. You`ll laugh at how easy it is along with the fact that they can`t play Mission Impossible Theme and be able to play it just as good as I can on the first try. I would`ve done better when the band sightreads it together if I wasn`t so thrown off by their crappiness. Do you know how overwhelmed they get when they see so much as a D in the 3rd octave? They complain at every practise and just ask if I can play it without them. This is NOT boastful! Honest! And you should see the distribution of players! Holy Crap! 2 trombones, 3(7) clarinets, 6(8) trumpets, 9(11) flutes, 1 alto sax, 1 bass guitar, 1 drummer and (1 tenor sax). The bracketed numbers are sad band 1 only. Sorry for the long message. These bands CANNOT be explained briefly.
