also to ppl who say "who cares about speed and why are u making this a competition" i am trying to see how well i am doing in the timeframe that i have been speed building compared to other ppl to see if i am doing it correctly...wow taht confused me even lol

^Bpm of the metronome you're playing to times the note division (16th=4, etc) / 60.

And threadstarter... Don't compare yourself to others. Seriously, don't. It only leads to bad things.

Just make sure you're clean, and having fun.
