Start using your metronome by tapping the body of your guitar. Tap every time the metronome makes a sound. Notice it doesn’t speed up or slow down. Notice the groove. The consistency of the beat. It may seem dull, but it’s this sense of tempo that most beginners don’t have. Even people who have been learning for years don’t have a solid sense of timing. You’ve already made a head start on most beginners who will be playing songs with a bad sense of time.
