Here's a question i've been wondering for a little bit. As you get faster you practice with a metronome and get faster that way, you'll practice triplet notes, sixteenth notes, sixteenth note triplets etc. But say you're in a band and you're playing a solo or something and quite fast like say 8 notes per beat how can you make sure you're playing exactly 8 notes every time if the speed changes and with different instruments maybe. I mean surely you can't be concentrating on what you're playing and counting the notes at the same time surely that's impossible especially if you're playing fast you won't be able to count fast enough. And especially if you're improvising that would be even harder wouldn't it? You'd be concentrating even more on the notes and things. How can you make sure you play exactly 8 notes every time and not accidentally slip in 9 or go short and only do 7 that wouldn't sound right.

You must have certain sense of rhythm to keep up with the rhythm and tempo. To get to shred you need to practice with metronome. Than when you are playing without it you can tap the tempo with your leg.

You can't play wrong number of notes if you know what you are playing. Using sequences is especially useful here.

It's tooo simple. You don't have to worry about it! smile.gif

Number of notes per beat,per example.
But there are moments when guitarists play out of beat,and it's still shred.
Paul Gilbert is always IN beat,like straight 16th,triplets etc.
While on the other hand YJM often plays runs without specific duration,like from "note" to "note".
As Pavel said,practicing with metronome will help you to play IN beat.
Later on you can experiment. smile.gif

Sequencing - as Muris says - means the number of notes played per beat as a repeated ascending or descending pattern. So a 3 note sequence based on C major scale might be C D E, D E F, E F G, G G A and so on: 4 note - C D E F, D E F G, E F G A, F G A B and so on.

Cheers,
Tony
