I'm curious.
I personally don't, since I use an online one and a metronome isn't cheap. However, it'd be nice to actually have one and be able to practice anywhere.

The cheapest one in amazon costs like 13 bucks. Over here 13 bucks are a lot. For example, the monthly fee of Taekwon Do. Or more than the daily salary of a waitress.

I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.

Never had one, never used one. I've never had the need for one to be honest.
Question not yourself. Challenge those who would deny you your true self for an independent thinker is the greatest enemy to those who seek to control you

i have one in every room in my house besides the kitchen (this includes the bathroom). i have a tendency to wander around the house while playing unplugged and when i need a metronome there's always one nearby.

as for the metronome in the bathroom i often work on fast alternate picking runs while i'm squeezing out ass gorgons.

no.


on a serous note my timing used to completely suck. lots of metronome practice has really helped significantly. it's honestly become one of my favorite tools for practicing.

surely there must just be a difference in currency and therefore not that much money?

or are 13 american dollars the same as 13 argentinan dollars? (that's where you are, right? I can't remember )

if not, that's insane! I feel for you man.

Well that's where the thing balances itself. Stuff that is needed for living such as rent, food, gas, electricity, and that stuff, is cheaper. However, stuff like guitars, cars, TV's, PC's, and technology overall, is the same price as there if not more.
And we have the "Peso". 1 Dollar = 3.11 pesos.

Yea, maybe because you don't have any timing to begin with.


I used to never use a metronome before, but it's seriously essential for timing. Now my music professors make us stick to a metronome and I realize just how inaccurate I can be.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

No... I use the speed trainer or metronome in Guitar Pro usually... Or use my foot.
