I thought the bpm remained the same regardless of the number of notes played per bar. If the beat is 80bpm you can play quarter notes or 16th notes but it remains 80bpm.

Agreed, what changes is notes per minute. 1/4 notes means 80 notes per minute and 1/16 notes would be 320 notes per minute or 4 notes per beat or 16 notes in 3 seconds, if my arithmetic is correct. For what it's worth....

It depends on the time signature, of course ;)



If I can plug a couple of Justin's books...

Thanks everybody, I now understand.

So Justin says the target is 120bpm with 16th notes ie 480 notes per minute.  That does seem fast to me.

Of course, I say, having completely forgotten to consider that  :-[

Am I right in saying that my arithmetic was OK assuming that the time signature was 4/4?

Or was I completely confused  ;D

Hi David, yup, at 80 bpm in 4/4 time that's 80 quarter notes, and also 320 sixteenth notes.
