Watch the Whole & Quarter Note Strums online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Learn Guitar 1: First Steps for Beginners (FREE)

Learning to play in time is really important! We're going to talk about whole notes and quarter notes here. During this course, you'll see the beat in numbers on the screen, as well as hear the metronome. This will help you hear and see the beat. Eventually you'll be able to tap your foot to the metronome or a drummer and know that you're synced up with the music.
