The Best ITM Tune-Learning Tutor

Tempo

The Tempo of a tune is basically the speed of the pulses of a tune.  So you can play a rhythm at a faster or slower tempo.  When learning you should ALWAYS START WITH A SLOWER TEMPO when learning.  Do not begin by playing at a fast tempo.  Doing so will make you into a sloppy player.  For learning, I would suggest you start playing a tune at about 60 BPM or even slower.
