Metronome practice

Pranav Sriram
28 Jul 0 0

Metronome:

It is a device that produces an audible click or another sound at a regular interval that can be set by the user, typically in beats per minute. Musicians use the device to practise playing to a steady pulse. Metronomes typically include synchronized visual motion.

Nowadays, you can download the metronome app on any smartphone. But, if you are old fashioned, I suppose you can buy these online.

Why is this important?

We can say, music is a decoration of time, and as we know, time waits for no one. A musician who practices without a metronome will have a tough time keeping the time in a recording studio or band rehearsal.

In this lesson, we will discuss how to use a metronome effectively for practice assuming you know time signatures and note durations.

Procedure for using metronome:

1) Select the desired tempo.

2) Select the desired time signature.

3) Start practice

 

How to build speed?

1. Start at quarter-notes, 70 BPM, 4/4(or whatever time signature you are trying to practice)

2. Once you execute the part, you are trying to practice three times in a row, increase the speed by 8 BPM.

3. Again, once you perform the part, you are trying to practice three times in a row, decrease the rate by 4 BPM.

4. Repeat step 2.

5. Repeat step 3.

6. Keep this up until you reach 140 BPM

7.once you reach 140 BPM, reset the tempo to 70 BPM.

8. Repeat step 1 to step 7, but this time play eight-notes.

9. Repeat step 1 to step 7, but this time play sixteenth-notes.

 

NOTE:

Many guitar players rush this practice because they want to play fast. But speed means nothing without note clarity. This is why it is essential to practice with a metronome.

 

PRACTICE ROUTINE:

Duration of practice: 1-hour

step 1: Divide the hour into four parts. i.e., 15 min each

step 2: Select 4 things to practice in that hour.

           Ex: chords,scales,arpeggios,improvisation

step 3: Practice chords, scales, arpeggios and improvisation over a backing track for 15 min each.
