OK. For Metallica's Master OF Puppets it say's the BPM for the song is 108. On my metronome were should i set the bpm's at i was thinking 80 maybe.

idk, sounds liek common sense to me, but i don't use a metronome haha

Start at a tempo where you know you can play it perfectly and work up from there, we can't tell you what that is.

You're correct. Lowering the tempo until you can play it well, then raising it is a good way to learn a song you're struggling with. And most of MoP is much faster than 108, except for the half time clean interlude. You could play it at 108 or whatever it is, but you'd be playing in double time.

108 in double time is a better tempo to work towards, most metronomes don't go over 208 in my experience.

Sorry, I'm a grammar Nazi

Any ways, that's what the note means, though the song is not 108 bpm, it is definitely 220.

I can tell you now that MOP is 220 bpm, not 108.


You can play it at 108 as long as you play it all in 16ths instead of 8ths, dear god don't try playing it in 16ths at 220

What do you mean by the 16th's instead of 8th's.


16ths = 4 notes to the beat

8ths = 2 notes to the beat

The second solo is 16th notes at 220.
But ya, you could play it using 16th notes at 110 (or 108 for that matter, won't make a hella lot of difference, just be a tad slower). Hell, that's what I do, a metronome going at 220 throws me off WAY too much.

I thing I'll just play with the song an get it up to speed that way seems alot easier that way.
