I think there might be a sneaky mistake in bar 5. The F pentatonic scale going down with the D shape reads 5-2 on the d string, notes G-E.
I believe it should read 5-3, notes being G-F; and it sounds and looks like this is what Papa Gates plays.
its actually pretty simple to start, so to start off something basic id just hit palm mute open e 4 times at lets say 60 bpm, you could go in hit two notes, the first strike should be synchronized with the beat. not the best explanation but i saw no one else replied. theres plenty of videos on youtube explaining it better than me.
1 attack per click - 2 apc - 3 apc - 4 apc etc. attack is just however you want to strum the note(s). This is kind of how I've been approaching it. Changing the Tempo of the Metronome, if there's a lot of notes in one beat/measure, I'll slow it down and if there's less, I'll make it a bit faster. I'm still learning to work with one, it's been tedious and amazing ( Spider-Man )
You can skip/rest notes too, if you count out loud 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & or till whatever number you want, it's a little easier to mix things up. Also can apc on the "&" when counting.
Hopefully this helps some, GL!
This is great Captain ! I struggle with this myself and I’ve watched a plethora of videos online and none have been as clear as yours !
Often times I’ve thought “there’s something wrong with my brain” lol. (Which is partly true )
Also, I love you going old school with the sticky notes !
Just pointing out there is a small mistake in the 5th measure
the F chord is a D shape which he is playing correctly
but for those looking at the tab, here is what should be played View attachment 1294
