I'm trying to figure out how to play to the Metronome (I have no rhythm). I'm trying to play "Day Tripper" by The Beatles. This song seems to have notes played in odd places. I can slow down the main riff, but I don't see how the beats on the metronome fit.
I pulled it into a program called TuxGuitar to work out the exact notes and make sure it sounded right (web guitar tabs suck, so I used this to tweak it until I thought it was right). I added a beat track into the app so I could try to hear what the Metronome was supposed to sound like. They just don't seem to match up, even though I used the same program. Am I doing this wrong? Is this a hard song because they don't play with the beats?
Here's what the first measure looks like in TuxGuitar. I hope this tiny bit doesn't break any copyright laws. The second part is what I thought the metronome beats might look like (it's a steel guitar in the midi just to give you an idea).
Here's the midi file I generated. Is the beat completely wrong? It sure sounds wrong to me.
I've been reading that I need to play along with a metronome, but I'm not syncing with it. Maybe I should just play scales to the metronome or something, but that's not much fun.
