Yeah how do you figure out the BPM of a song? Usually the Guitar pro tabs already have it there for me but text tabs don't.
I'd say just listen to the song and play it out in a similar speed. Music is very free and open to be played at whatever speed you want. It's very much up to how you want to interpret it.
Yeah that's true. I just use my ears for figuring out if it feels right, however I was just curious.
The percussion or rhythm section is usually a good predictor of the tempo of the song.
