How do you guys use the metronome? What type of device do you use? If not using a metronome, what do you use?

Let us know in what way you change the tempos while practicing? Do you have a method for that, or just pick random?

The metronome is a very useful tool indeed, but nonetheless, we can use our own body for keeping a constant timing! Here's an approach I love:

- Tap your foot on the ground and come up with a short vamp (maximum 2 chords)
- Come up with all sorts of short licks when finishing the phrases and when starting them and then try to get back into the vamp smile.gif

The idea is to groove around the vamp you created, managing to hold on to the beat and improvise in the same time smile.gif

Hope this makes sense, but I am sure it's gonna do a LOT of good biggrin.gif

Of course, the need for metronome is constant . However, I prefer to open addictive drums and practice with it.

I use it to get fimiliar with certain beats.....for example...

Set the metronone to 90bpm.... Alternate pick triplets, then 16th notes, then 16th note triplets, then accent different beats etc....

This is what I use nowadays... http://www.metronomeonline.com/
When I'm practising I start with a comfortable tempo and then continue adding 5 or 10 bpm, every time that I feel comfortable with the tempo again.

Victor Wooton has great tips for using the metronome and why to use one instead of a drum pattern.

I hate the metronome. It's just so annoying. If I do practice with a time keeper, it's usually along with a drum track. Most of the time I am practicing a GMC lesson using the backing track. I download it and load it up in Reaper and change the bmps if needed. I also play along with the instructor to make sure my attack is right. And when I'm composing I use drum patterns anyway.

everyday I start my warmup with it at 80bpm's - four notes per beat and have it set up for a click at every note
I am trying to get rid of some bad habits of learning wrong and with a click with triplets that gave me an accent that would always throw my timing off(when I switch strings) when doing triplets, three notes per strings.
From my experiance you should set a metronome with out accents and the same click every note so that you don't develope any accents until your timing is developedl
I don't think a metronome is necessary once you have established perfect time
but until then ,I think they are very important
