gday again mates,

about metronomes again ..........im also wondering do u always use a metronome for absolutely every lick riff or solo or song that u r practicing??......for example.....in the HOT BLUES section would u practice all the licks shown with a metronome AND if the lick/riff/solo that u may be practising contains say....quarter notes, eighth notes, triplets and sixteenth notes , for instance, would u use a metronome for that too....i could only imagine how that would be to do.....for me anyways blink.gif

any answer would be greatly appreciated,

cheers mates cool.gif \m/

So would it be detrimental for me to just pick up my guitar as I pass it (as I do 1,000,000,000,000 times a day) and just run through a riff I'm in the middle of learning - one run through to perfect the bend, fix a buzz or simply make me smile before I put it back down and go back to work?

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

Yes.

The only exceptions are

1) You have achieved perfect timing after decades of practicing and playing (please post a recordings of yours)
2) You are playing with a band/drum machine/recording
3) You are preparing an accapella solo with temposhifts in it - and you don't have a programmable metronome.

So yes always - and you will thank me! biggrin.gif

And if you practice with Guitar Pro ??? huh.gif

Is it good enough to have the effect like a metronome unsure.gif , I mean you hear the music and see the tabs goes by . so I think your timing is correct after playing it 50 times . rolleyes.gif
