      This is Day 8 and so far the only video I dare to share! I started at 80bpm and this has increased to 108bpm (for some reason my metronome increases by 4bpm!) I’ve been slowing the different segments of the tune in order to be able to play them faster when put back together as Jason suggests.

      Nice! That is a tricky little tune. (AKA “Who’s Been Here Since I’ve Been Gone?” as the soldier returns to his pregnant wife)

      Thanks Carolyn! I never knew there were words to the tune & an alternative title. I’ll look it up.

      This is Day 14: increased to 138bpm. It was OK till I messed-up the ending!

      Impressive, Jo! What great progress! Thanks for sharing this….it’s so helpful to see how others do this! Just learning to follow that metronome is challenging and you’ve got it!

        Thanks @cynhrossi !
        It took me a while to get the playing with a metronome thing! I started by just playing a note with a beat and actually found it easier at first to play with the drum patterns that are on the site at Beat Central. Jason has a really useful video on “how to play with a metronome” it certainly on his YouTube channel if not on the website.

      Well done, Joanne! It’s a very good discipline to practice with the metronome and drum beats. I need to do more of it with the songs I’ve learnt. I seem to get to a certain speed and then everything falls apart!

      Nice! It’s such a cool tune, and you are doing great on it! Metronome is a demanding master.
