    Some advice please

    Hi everyone,

    I need some help in improving my playing. I like to play just about everything, but one thing that has always been a huge problem gallop rhythms.

    How do you count and practise them with a metronome? I have a metronome but have had a really hard time using it any advice?

    I'm not a metronome person, but, as to the strum pattern itself:

    Go watch TV and deaden the strings around the 6th fret so you get a dull thump sound. Now practice the strum for an hours program. Muscle memory should have set in by then and that particular gallop should be yours.

    Step two: Use it a lot.
