Joe Satriani has some pretty "clear' songs. Premonition, Dream Song and Revelation are pretty straight forward in that there aren't many crazy effects going on. I have to note Dream Song's intro...

The phone ringing tone is also in 5/4. At least where I live.

Ever since I made that realization, I can't ever listen to the phone ringing and not tap out the 5/4 signature.

Assuming your song is in 3/4 or 4/4, set the metronome to click once every beat. Then play your notes according to the beat. For example, sixteenth notes would mean you play 4 notes per beat. If you...

It sounds like it's now a reflex action. The general advice you'd hear is to slow everything way down and concentrate on your shoulders NOT tensing up.

Beyond that, based on your experimentation,...

It actually gets better when you're plugged in. The raw scraping sound gets more amplified on guitars with soundholes.

Metallica sounds like they'd make very bad gym music.

Just make a playlist full of Disturbed. The amount of YAMUNUHs on there should be fitting in a gym, where people tend to make the same sounds.

I vote for the Pod HD series if you can stretch your budget a little. You're not going to run into any difficulties with playing any genre of music with the Pod.

Which was the reason why I qualified my post with the last sentence. :p

I use alternate picking because it gives me more control. I don't have the discipline to not wing it on economy picking.
