i am practicing scales with my metronome and i can do half notes quarter notes and 8th notes, but i don't know how to count 16th notes.
#2
they're half as long as an 8th.

just play 2 notes to every 8th on your metronome?

or double the tempo
#3
1 e and ah 2 e and ah...
apparently UG's only type O-

yes but i learnt to count 8th notes like 1 and 2 and 3 and 4. with the number on the tick but how to count 16th?
#5
Yeah, its 1 ee an ah 2 ee an ah.

What I always wanted to know is how do you count 32nd notes.
#8

#10
closer to 80 probably....

Yes, for 16ths, you'll want well below 100 on the metronome.

if ur going to play some american idiot stuff heres the settings:

Master Volume : 0
i dunno about the rest
#12
but it's normal to practice 16th notes on higher rates after a while ain't it?

doing it on 66 now and i don't see myself doing it any faster

If you are alternate picking you should be able to go much faster than 66. Sounds like you may just be doing downstrokes or just starting...so either alternate pick or practice more.

1 E and ah 2 E and ah 3 E and ah 4 e and ah

Thats how do it anyway, if thats what you meant.

I don't really think you should count 16th notes. It's not very useful and becomes impossible on high tempo's. Just start out with 4th's then double the speed, you have 8th's, then double again and you have 16th's.
