Which is the correct note timing?
I am working on an adaption of the Hans Zimmer piece, "Chevaliers De Salgreal". I've discovered that I can alter the timing of a note a variety of ways, but due to being a complete novice in music notation, I have no idea if one way is better than another. Here is an example. Pay attention to measures 12 and 14.
The measures play exactly the same timing, whether I use an 8th, quarter or full note. The only difference is the rests. How does one tell which notes to use?
