I was playing Number of the Beast at an even faster tempo than they play it (also other songs) and was wondering do you guys for fun ever play songs at faster tempos?

For example do you play 16th notes as 24th notes just to get faster or to have fun?

Why does Yngwie Malmsteen have some tabs saying 24th notes then if they don't exist.

Why would you look at Malmsteen's tabs ? That guy eats too much cheesecake and pizza anyway.

im assuming a "24th" note is 3 notes in the space of one 8th note

and yes they do let us use computers in the asylum

My friend and I like to play a sped up version of Iron Man almost every time we play together. It's a fun warm up of sorts...

That's what I was thinking.

Of course, Hendrix famously shocked the living hell out of Eric Clapton with an up-tempo version of Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor"...seems a good route to go, really.

I play petrucci's take on "flight of the bumblebee" in double time. No biggie.

But usually when I'm playing a classic rock song like from Led Zep I add in a bunch of stuff so the solo is more interesting(to me) live. I think most people except for strict cover/tribute bands do that.

Should I be surprised comin' from a Yngwie lover ? I just don't like him. He does a pretty good job at mixing classical and instrumental metal but he gets boring very fast, using the same patterns over and over again. Lots of respect for his arpeggios from hell though.

Still, you're an asshole for talking to me like that. Go to hell.

Naw, that would be "12th notes." "24th" notes would be 16th note triplets.

I think your both right. Your saying sixteenth triplets which are three notes in place of two sixteenths, but since two sixteenths are one eighth note, than there are three sixteenth note triplets ("24th notes") in the same time as one eighth note.

Using math we can determine that both are equal to "24th notes" hence why they are equal.

3 in the space of eight notes = 1/3 of 1/8 = (1/3)(1/8) = 1(1)/3(8) = 1/24
sixteenth triplets = 2/3 of 1/16 = (2/3)(1/16) = 2(1)/3(16) = 2/48 = 1/24
