Depend what you want to use it for. If you want it to babysit your children, no good. If you want it to change your oil...no good. If you want it to give you a steady rhythm so you can build your skill at playing in time...they're a step in the right direction.

Oooooh...well, for an extra $10 you can get the combo burglar alarm/metronome. Hitting the wrong button when you're practicing, however, can cause instant defecation.

Are you playing plugged in?


A metronomes worth all depends on which direction you want to take with your guitar playing. If you want to be one of those losers who practices scales and runs six hours a day, its great. But if just play for fun and learn whatever songs you want whenever you want, they aren't as useful.

That or just go unplugged. I never use an amp when im using a metranome.

Metronome's are very good for the beginning guitar player. They can really get you good with keeping time, and being able to do 16th (etc) and triplets (etc) on time. Also, if you didn't really know if a metronome was good or if you wasted your money.... WHY DID YOU BUY ONE???????
