Have a question regarding metronome use and I want to apologies if this is a dumb question huh.gif I have just started using a metronome I dont know why I never did before has helped me so much on keeping time. My questions are #1. If I am doing 16th note triplets at 60 bpm as far as my understanding is for every click I have to get 3 notes per click, is that correct?? #2. If I am practicing sweep picking using for example a D Maj Arpeggio at 60 bpm ( this is where I get confused) how many notes of that arpeggio do I have to do per click?? Thank you and sorry if that's a dumb question I just really want to understand more on the uses of the metronome because it has already helped me keep time and I know it will help me in all other areas.

Hey

not a dumb questions at all!

1. That would be 8th-note triplets if you are doing 3 notes per click, you can fit 3 notes in place of 1 quarter note when you play 8th-note triplets.

2. If you are playing D F# A D, or the Root 3 5 Root of Dmaj, then you would play 16th notes, so 4 notes per click. Or, you can break that up into 8th notes and play 2 notes per click over 2 beats for the arpeggio.

Here is a link that you might find helpful when studying time and rhythm.

+1 for The Professor smile.gif))

16th notes triples are twice as many notes as 8th notes triplets

8th triplets = 3 notes per click
16th triplets = 6 notes per click

I hope this looks pretty clear smile.gif

2. You have to be more precise of what You want to play. Arpeggios can be played with different types of rhythm. So we can only suggest some solutions but You should always try to define by yourself at what rhythm values You want to play particular lick.

Thank you all for the help smile.gif) As far as the Arpeggios go was thinking it the context of sweep picking and as far as metronome use I gotta Thank Cosmin smile.gif Has helped me tremendously with everything and really pointed out how important using a metronome is.
