    Hi.

    Anyone knows the bpm for this song? I have tried to sync the metronom against the CD but not really getting there :rolleyes:

    regards, Henning

    The "Live Alive" version fluctuates between 48 and 52 bpm, so 50 bpm would be my choice for playing it with a metronome. Notice that this is a 12/8 blues shuffle, so each beat doesn't equal a quarter note but a dotted quarter note.

    Hope this helps.
