Dotted Notes

To get even more specific note values,

we can have a note be dotted.

A dotted note equals the note, plus one half of its value.

We can apply this dot to any of the original note values;

We can even add a dot to an already dotted note;

(We can technically have a triple dotted note - but you don’t see too many of those. )

Dotted sixteenth note

Dotted quarter note

Double dotted half note

And we can have dotted rests as well;
