Default Learn & Practice with a metronome. - 10-13-2007, 12:14 PM

This is a valid tip for anyone out there who are beginning at guitar. Timing is very important. Here is a link to an online metronome to use while sitting around jamming near your PC.

Use it! You'll be glad you did.

Yeah, timing is a very underrated skill in learning guitar. In fact, bad timing is more of an issue as missing notes or messing up in a band presence. So for anyone starting to play guitar... use a metronome. You'll be glad you did when it's time to take it to the next level.

And you hit a good point also... some people are gifted with automatic timing skills and some are not. But not a correctable problem, just get out there and play-play-play!

I must say, my biggest weakness at playing any instrument is my timing....

This is a cool website none-the-less
