If you go into settings (the gear icon in the top-right corner), there's a metronome setting you can turn on. You have to be playing or recording a track for it to play though.

The tuner might not work as well with the microphone. I'm used to using my adapter to plug straight into it.

I have the iRig for guitar, so it just works with electric guitars, but it works fantastic. I know there's an iRig microphone for vocals and stuff. That would probably still pick up an acoustic guitar better than the iPhone's built in microphone.

Here's my current abilities with sweep picking. Super basic chord in triplets at 100 bpm. I've got a LONG ways to go.

Upgraded my #1 last night. Seymour Duncan '59 in the neck to complement the JB in the bridge.

nice!

been working on a couple songs:

incubus: mexico
chili peppers: under the bridge
zeppelin: stairway intro

have some other riffs that I've been using to excercise the fingers and get them used to positioning. Going well though, becoming more precise and notes are coming out a lot cleaner.

Nice! I did an instrumental version of Stairway by myself for a talent show in college. I had a wireless system at the time, so I showed off by jumping off stage and going out into the auditorium.

For a bit more of an advanced sweep picking exercise than the video I posted, I've been working on this:

e---------7-8p7---------------7-10p7----
B-------8--------8----------8----------8--
G--7h9------------9----7h9--------------9

Here's a recording I just did a few minutes ago of me doing it at 125 bpm. I really only do that full riff twice, and then I just looped it. Still a long way to go for full speed sweeping, but I'm getting there!
