Hey guys, it's Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw the stems in music. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to start with a couple of just dots here, maybe the middle one will be open, so they just start of just like that, and then, what we're going to do is, we're going to draw just a couple of lines, just connecting at the right side of each one of these, bring them up a little bit high, and maybe for this one, it kind of arcs back, and you're going to do two of them, just like that, maybe this one I'm just going to do just one, and for this one, maybe it's just plain, I'm not going to do anything to it. But you can kind of get a, depending on what you're doing this for, if you're actually using it for actual musical notation, you can keep them pretty basic, if you're using it for maybe like, something that you're using for a project, you can do them different colors, you can maybe add a little couple of extra squiggles and flourishes or whatever you want to it, it's totally up to you. But keep it your style and keep it the way you want it, so there you go, that's how you draw musical stems. Good luck guys and stay creative.
