  • BPM on all excercises

    Posted by Kerby on November 27, 2022 at 9:04 am

    I want to know what the tempo is at 1 x . The tab sheet always indicates 120 bpm.

    is 1X one half or 60 bpm?

    @1967kerbygmail.com I have a very very cool (and very free) iphone app called ProMetronome which has a feature called “tap”. All you have to do is tap the “tap” button to the beat of any music/exercise and it will automatically set the digital tempo bpm to the rate you are tapping. (Friday’s Lesson -Chords in Em taps out at 60 bpm with one beat per quarter note)

    Also keep in mind that if a quarter note gets one beat, but you want to hear a click on all the eighth notes, your “tempo number” will be twice the value, but the actual speed will be the same.

    And honestly I don’t pay much attention to the tempo numbers in the daily TAC lessons. I learn it at a slow steady pace to get it under my fingers, then I increase my speed as much as possible for me.

    Have fun!!! C
