    If you have a line out from your amp, you can probably run that to the line in on your soundcard. You might need an adapter.
    I hate the sound when recording through line .... that's just horrible ....

    I do want to use a microphone to get at least a somewhat decent sound ...

    I don't have any recording equipment, not even a good soundcard, just the standard built-in soundcard .... and no software to make a line-recorded guitar sound good .....



    So, I need to record with a microphone

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. Hey James.


    Anyway, I started out this exercise and I'm at 120bpm. The change in postition is killing me. I even had to try a different fingering on the first sets where the notes are a whole step apart. Good exercise James.

    LOL, I'm having the same problem, check out the fingering positions UKRuss suggested.

    I got it a little better now. I'm also trying to concentrate on the pick hand and keep my pick in the same postition at all times (not letting my fingers move the pick).

    I hit a wall at 140. I can pick it, but not repeatedly.

    I'm going to set up my metronome and start measuring my playing, but how do I measure it? 3/4 , 4/4 ? One note per click or 3 notes per click?

    It appears to be written in 3/4. Three sets of 1/8 triplets per bar.

    Of course the other option is to play along with the PowerTab, and set the time signature in there.

    Typically since it is 1/8th note triplets you would set the metronome for 1/4 notes and each click would have three notes. Guy's don't underestimate the power of recording this to hear how it actually sounds instead of how you think it sounds. I suspect most of you will lower your speed to make this sound cleaner when you actually record it and listen to it. The way I execute this passage I use my 4th finger (Pinky) to slide up from 12-13 to turn it around to the second staff and descend, then when I return to the beggining staff I slide down with my index finger. I still pick every note even though these are actually slides, really more as position shifts.

    Ai caramba!

    I knew my picking wasn't up to scratch but I didn't I sucked THIS hard at playing with a metronome .
    Anyways here is my take playing along the file at 160. The 3/4 time was really killing me. Well lets just say there is a lot of room for improvement .

    Greets, Buebo.

    Hi all,

    There was no mention of needing to use a pick and I do alternate my picking fingers

    This is about my limit, when I push the metronome further things start to mess up badly..

    Nice Steve...surely you mean 172BPM though???

    I saw 72 and thought...Steve? Nahhhhhhh, he must go a bit faster than that.

    Nice and clean dynamics.

    I'm playing 9 notes a beat, so the equivalent would be 216

    I used http://www.metronomeonline.com/ as my metronome and that stops at 208..
