6/8 at 130bpm sounds WAY too fast? Android app
« on: January 31, 2021, 04:06:41 pm »




I'm trying to practice the 6/8 strumming from Lesson 6 and my metronome sounds super fast compared to what Justin's example in the video sounded like. Is there something I can change in the settings to chill it out?

Set your metronome to 65, that’s the 3/4 timing rather than 6/8, there’s often that problem people come up against I really don’t know why they do it!

Thanks! 65bpm sounds A LOT more playable.

I set it to 6/8 in the app (just saw how terrible the video is now) but 3/4 time sounds more like what it should when I tried it on another metronome app. Should I just use 3/4 instead? Or use 6/8 at a lower bpm? Are those basically the same? I'm trying to figure it out for House of the Rising Sun.

Watch this, it’s a great explanation that you might relate with:
