Why does he say 160BPM 32nds, and not 320BPM 16ths?
What is the difference? IS there a difference?

NZ, this is nothing personal aye i just wanted to (ab)use your words for starting this thread.

there is no difference...kinda like playing quarter notes in one hand at 120BPM
and then switching to alternating between right and left. this could either be eighth notes at 60BPM or alternating quater notes at 120BPM...no difference

its just the way they chose to write it

The song can be 160BPM but the drums can be in 320(.....). So it would make more since to use 160BPM 32nds instead of 320BPM.

The drums could be played twice as fast as the tempo of the song...

I said 160 bpm 32nds because that was what his metronome was set to!

yep you are right, 160 bpm 32nds = 320 BPM 16ths. the only reason for using the higher tempos is 2 fold:

first: boasting 'yeah thats right I can play double bass at 240 bpm yeah yeah' sounds soooo much cooler than 'I can play double bass at 120!'

actually thats just a bit of a joke the REAL reasons are this:

you can play 16ths at 235 BPM, you can't play 32nds at 117.5 BPM (okay technically you can, but no one does)

the other reason is score writing, when you use lower tempos, and write 32nds, thats a lot of notes per bar that you have to fit into one bar, and it gets VERY messy VERY quickly, so you use a double tempo, and halve the number of notes per bar, which is much easier to read and follow.

You're lucky you live in Finland, otherwise I would have said something stupid to you.

6/8 is the best. It's like riding a horse into fucking armagaedon. Very epic sounding.
