You can strike one note per tick (you will then play "quarter" notes) - when you are comfortable with this I suggest you move on to eight notes (two notes per tick). Be sure to play those two notes evenly, so that the time between them is the same.

Understanding the metronome is an important step in your development - so be sure to ask more questions! smile.gif

Hi all,

thanks for all the help. I understand it now smile.gif The video lesson was especially helpfull!

Would you recommend buying a metronome or just sticking to the one online?

Well, if your pc is close to your guitar and amp you can use an online metronome, they are just as good as a 'real' metronome.

Btw, if you need a good offline metronome check out Weird Metronome, it's free, really small (about 24kB) and does the job very well. I've been using it for quite some time.

I prefer using regular digital metronome. PC can always be distracting and sometimes I don't need it on when practicing. Check it out it's cheap and very functional:
