So I’m following the beginner lessons here at the site. I’m taking my time to perfect all slowly before I move on to the next lesson. Right now I can play Jingle Bells quite okay. I’m just struggling with the tempo. When I set the Metronome to 60 it’s sooooo slow I can’t really feel the music. I set it to 69bpm and I still feel it’s slow.
Any recommendation to what tempo should I play at this stage?
Hi Ishe7ata, can you point me to the Jingle Bells video that you’re trying to play? If it feels slow, how about speed it up to a comfortable tempo, then tell me what bpm you are playing at. If you have it under control and are holding your violin and bow properly, and making a good sound, my general rule is that bpm is not important. If I can watch the video, perhaps I can give a better suggestion. There are so many videos! I tried to find it but I couldn’t find it after scrolling through two pages. Thanks in advance!
