Hello! I have been doing a lot of reading in this sub-forum and it's become my favorite here on TGP! Not only is it informative for me as a "self-taught" guitarist but it's the one place where the difference of opinion is usually one of approach and is always constructive! My most recent takeaways are these: 1) The practice of a given technique for 5-10 minutes per day for one year can yield a substantial progress. 2) I need to work with a metronome. I have tried doing metronome work in the past since it's one of those things we're "supposed to do" but it's bored me pretty quickly. My question is: What do you recommend as a good starting regimen for metronome training? I assume that 4/4 is a given but at which BPM? I intend on revisiting basic major/minor key fretboard familiarization (scales/intervals) while I do these exercises...two birds with one stone, and all that. I generally play with 50s and 60s style of blues, funk, and R&B, although I do experiment with other flavors, too. Point is, I don't do shred. If I'm approaching this excercise routine as a beginner, what would a good starting point be? Thanks for your time!
