I have been working on BYE BYE LOVE for several weeks. I have the cords and cord changes pretty good but cannot get it to sound like the song. Have a smooth strum that follows the recommended pattern. BUT, for the life of me I cannot get the tempo right.

I really wish that Justin would recommend tempo BPM in his song books. I have the Beginner and Vintage books. If he included tempo rates it would give us a target. I fully understand that we need to work up to it but when is too fast or slow! (I play Stand By Me but sometimes I think the tempo is not correct although not out by much.)

Have tried with my metronome to match speed with the original song but that does not work for me. I do not have the skill - hope it will come someday. As implied I am totally frustrated. 

HOPEFULLY, Justin reads this and includes tempo in future books!!!!!

Murphy, if your metronome has a tap tempo functionality you simply tap that following the beat of the song. No biggie.
