    hey, im trying to learn manhattan by eric johnson but im having some problems. Im using the tab found on "mysongbook.com." The problem is, i just cant seem to get the timing right. I have been trying to count it out but i keep getting messed up and its starting to frustrate me. Does anyone have any tips for keeping good time for this song...or for just keeping good time in general?

    thanks

    Any specific part? It sounds pretty straightforward to me.

    The only areas I think might be rhythmically tricky is the single note "solo" section, where there are some anticipated beats.

    It's generally a good idea to get some basic note reading skills under your belt if you haven't done so already. Being able to see the notes in front of me is a big help to me when I'm trying to figure out something that's rhythmically tricky.
