I am unsure what it means when a guitar player says that they can play (for example) 160 beats per minute.
I have never concerned myself with how many BPM I could play but I see alot of posters touting how many BPM they can play so I thought I would measure myself.
So what do I do...set my metronome on something and then play a note every time it clicks? Is that what it means? Or is it playing quarter or eight notes between clicks.
Any help understanding this speed measuring phenom would, as always, be much appreciated.

Thank you and a safe and Happy Independence day to all of my fellow americans !
