Use this tool to calculate the song’s tempo in Beats Per Minute (BPM). What is Beats Per Minute? Beats Per Minute (BPM) is a term for measuring the tempo of a piece of music. “Tempo” is a musical term for the pace or speed of a piece of music.

When you’re learning a new arrangement on guitar, it’s best to start your practice at a slow and comfortable BPM so you can build the proper right and left hand technique. Also, it’s important to relax your strumming and fretting hands. Don’t worry about volume at first — just focus on playing each note and strum softly and smoothly. As you practice, increase the BPM in increments. Eventually, your pick accuracy, speed, and volume will develop naturally.
