Hi Griff, I have a question that perhaps many 'returning to it' guitarists might relate to. Okay, here's my question: As a self taught rhythm guitarist, who now plays rhythm reasonably well (pardon my immodesty!), I find it really hard to slow down to play along with your examples in the 'Beginners'' course; is it absolutely indespensible to do so? Or if I see how a phrase or a lick should sound like at a slightly faster tempo, is it okay to ignore the metronome... and perhaps even the playalong... ? I guess what I'm really asking, is, "Is there some particular point to learning how to play at 54 or 60 bpm?
