Gypsy Metronome help (16) RE: Metronome help 08 Dec 05


So, what are you setting the metronome TO? When we are playing for a contra dance, the tempo is generally twixt 112 and 120something.........but say it is a reel: Are you ticking off the quarter notes, or the down beats? I had thought you set the ticks to the time signature, but if you do that, a contra would be way too easy to play. So, what basic rule of thumb am i using? For a reel, waltz, and jig. I would imagine that a hornpipe would be the same as a reel, and wouldn't a polka be the same as well? thanks, all
